Making place mats for our Thanksgiving feast in preschool

As part of our preparation for our thanksgiving feast, we have made all kinds of place mats. Each teacher has selected a different design for their children to make.

This class made turkeys by drawing around their foot and cutting it out of brown construction paper. The children glued their paper foot onto their place mat first…

Then they glued little colorful squares to their place mats to create feathers…

There were lots of other ideas as well but I couldn’t catch them in action so I will just share the final results with you because they are very cute to see…

We tickled our feet and hands with these painted turkeys…

We made fabulous fall fingerprint trees on these place mats…

We glued interesting shapes in long rows, or sort of long rows, for these Native American looking place mat…

And a few turkey and footprint pilgrim place mats were made by this class…

See our hatsinvitations, and menu too!
