Christmas Place Mats

Back in November, I read a post by Miss Trayers at Not Just Child's Play.  Her kids made Thanksgiving place mats as a form of community service.  I loved the idea so much that I incorporated it into my RACK (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness) days that I do with my kids in December.  Go here to read more about RACKing.  

My kids made Christmas place mats for some local senior citizens.  They did such a beautiful job.  I was proud to share them with our elderly community.  Here are just a few, but they were all wonderful.









I hope these place mats create some smiles and change some worlds this Christmas season!  (Thanks Miss Trayers for the wonderful idea.)

  8. Another great idea (I'm reading these backwards :)
    I wanted to do R.A.K. and did a couple, but just couldn't think. I'm so borrowing these for next year! Thanks, thanks, thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh, and did you laminate them? Or just send the paper? Still cool, either way! Sara

    2. Sara, if you come up with some great ideas for your RACK, let me know. Nope, I didn't laminate them. If laminating film didn't cost so much, I might have done it though. :)
