How to Turn Fall Leaves Into Thanksgiving Placemats (& Fun for the Kids)!

Don't spend a lot of money on fancy placemats for your Thanksgiving feast. Give that job to the kids! They get some fresh air and you get a fun, festive table.

You'll need:

  • fall leaves of various sizes
  • glue
  • construction paper

Here's how to make them:

  1. Send your kids outside to collect various sized and shaped fall leaves. (Better yet, go on a nature walk together!) 
  2. Have your child glue the leaves onto a sheet of construction paper.
  3. Allow to dry.

If you want to go one step further, you could even have them laminated.
