Place others first and you’ll make someone smile! Show you care by creating a placemat to donate to an agency that provides meals to people who are homeless, elderly, or disabled.
There are lots of terrific kids who help others, care for the environment, and make their communities better places to live! What can you do to help others in your community? Here's a great idea to inspire you: Design a placemat to donate to a service organization, such as one that provides meals for people who may be lonely or unable to leave their homes.
With Crayola Scissors, cut cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester fabric into a placemat. Put on your painting shirt, and cover your work surface with clean paper. Crayola® Fabric Markers stain clothing and surfaces, CLOSE ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED.
Use a ruler and Crayola Fabric Markers to separate sections on the fabric. Each section can be a different size and shape.
Create a cheerful design with large and small shapes, colors, or patterns. Add stripes or dots to fill each section with color.
Designs must be heat set by an adult so the placemat can be laundered. Set the iron to cotton. Iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. Or put the placemat in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting.
Have a party coming up? Involve kids in planning and preparations. Create your own piñata to accentuate your theme.
