Just change the front piece and names on these holiday place settings, and use them again and again.
What You'll Need:
Toilet paper tube (1 or more)
White craft foam or card stock
Card stock: assorted colors
Decorative items: chenille stems, faux gems, stickers
Decorative paper punches
Step 1: Help your child cut the tube into several two-inch pieces with a craft knife. Cut as many pieces as you want to make, using more than one tube if necessary.
Step 2: Wrap white craft foam or card stock around each tube section and cut to fit, leaving about 1/4 inch more width than the tube. Cut two slits in the center top of the foam to create a tab about 1/2 inch deep. Below this tab, cut a horizontal 1/2-inch slit.
Step 3: Glue this piece around the tube without gluing the tab or the slit. Hold in place with clothespins until the glue sets.
Step 4: With card stock, decorative-edge scissors, paper punches, stickers, chenille stems, and gems, use your imagination and creativity to design place markers for every season to insert into the top tab.
Step 5: Make name tags on your computer or use markers. Cut around the name, leaving a 1/2-inch tab on the bottom to fit into the horizontal tab.
Everyone will get into the Christmas spirit with the caroling activity you'll learn about next.
