- Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
- Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
Cut a large basket shape out of brown construction paper. Glue your basket shape onto a large piece of white paper. This will be the base for your placemat.
Now page through magazines and find pictures of Easter treats and eggs! Cut the pictures out of the magazines and glue them onto the top edge of your basket shape. Another fun idea is to cut egg shapes out of wallpaper samples, wrapping paper, or any other paper with designs on it.
You can also decorate your placemat by printing out and coloring one of more of these pictures.
Once the glue is dried, cover both sides of your new placemat with clear contact paper and it will last for many meals to come!
