I have to admit that this post is inspired by my parents. That is, I still sit at the 'kid table' which ranges from 2-40 and has two generations. Last year my parents made it a lot more fun. They used craft paper as a tablecloth and used sharpie to outline our place settings. There were crayons in the middle of the table and we all colored on our 'plates'.
I decided to make a table setting with only things I had around the house. Including several paper grocery bags. I wanted to make it all kid friendly and entertaining for the little ones.
I could make two placemats out of one grocery bag.
Step 1: Take off the handles of the grocery bag.
Step 2: Cut along the length of the bag and cut the bottom off.
Step 3: Cut the remaining rectangle in half for 2 placemats.
I kept the pinked top edge of the bag as the top of the placemat because I liked that look.
I painted 'thankful' on the top of all of the placemats. I simply used watered down black puff paint because I was out of any acrylic paint!
