Here is a little project just in time for Thanksgiving. My friend needed a craft project for her son's cub scout meeting, so I helped her out by making these printable sheets to create a thankful tree placemat. I had a lot of fun creating it and I thought this might be a fun craft for others so I am sharing the free coloring pages and the tutorial with everyone.
The pictures below are my own attempt at making the placemat. Boy, it has been a while since I've gotten out the crayons and paste! I know there are more creative people out there than me and I would love to see your pictures of placemats you make from using this tutorial and I will post them on my blog. The printable thankful tree outline and leaves are at the end of this tutorial.
Step 3: Cut out leaves and glue to tree.
*** Added note: If a leaf was overlooked and did not make it onto the placemat, you can make a pretty decent patch by cutting out a square of contact paper, stick it to the leaf, then smooth it onto the placemat.
