"Set the table" Placemats

We made these placemats in hopes that it would help Elena learn how to set the table. Very easy using these templates, I cut them out with different colored scrapbook paper (cardstock would work too.) Then I glued them on and laminated the whole thing to make them last longer.

It worked! I no longer have to set the table, Elena does it all by herself and we end up with all the right utensils instead of three knifes a piece for a bowl of soup. 🙂

    I love this idea, Jackie! Aaron has been helping set the table and usually does a good job, but I think he would really enjoy this. Anything to make work more fun, right?

    3 knives for a bowl of soup!? Love it. It made me LOL!!! I’ve seen these type placemats in the educational stores, but oh so much better being made by teamwork! I will let her set my table when y’all get here!
