Thanksgiving Place Mat

Introduction

The clock is always ticking when kids have to sit down to a holiday meal: How long before those rambunctious cousins stage a kids'-table revolt? Eke out a little peace with these clip-art place mats (and it'll be at least 20 minutes before they ask, "Can we puhleeeze be excused?").

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Trim kraft paper to 11 by 17 inches, and run the sheets through your printer like regular paper.

  2. Step 2

    Set the place mats out on the table with some cups of crayons, and let the kids have at it.

  3. Step 3

    I printed it on 8 1/2 x 11 and reduced the size to 60%

    I didn't even realize there was a home printer that took paper that large. But to solve the problem for this great idea, I printed the artwork on legal sized paper by reducing the size to 80%. I also printed enough copies to paste one on both sides of the place mats since kids often want to start over when they feel they have messed up.

    My printer only takes paper no wider than 8 1/2 x 11 ". How am I supposed to print this?
