To make it extra special the kids each make their own place mat. Below is the tray with all the supplies. These include short and long strips of paper (for the place mat boarder) dried and pressed leaves, different colored large square, rectangle, and triangle shaped paper I use all fall colored/themed paper and it's all geared to fit a standard 9x12 piece of construction paper.
Here is one being assembled
Here is a finished product! They all turn out different and depending on the size of their hand, you can sometimes trace both hands.
I will laminate them all to use at our feast and then they can take them home to use for their own!
