Dollar Store Placemats
My fall placemats were found at the dollar store in the art section. Each family member colored a scarecrow. I had them laminated and now we enjoy our artwork daily. For just $1 (not including laminating) it is a great craft project.
Supplies: Scarecrow placemats. Package of 6 at Dollar Store. Or, make your own with 11 x 17 construction paper. Crayons and colored pencils.
Color and laminate.
