Make meal times fun by getting the kids to make their own placemats.


  • 2 pieces of decorated paper
  • 2 laminator sheet pockets
  • 1 laminator


  1. Have your child decorate the paper as they like.
  2. Seal in a laminator pocket and laminate.


You can double the fun by making a second placemat picture and laminating them back to back to create a front and a back picture.

  • You can also cut them out into squiggles and make a jigsaw


  • Nice as a gift to grandparents too :)


  • I used to make heaps of these with the kids to preserve their beautiful drawings and paintings.


  • Something Grandma could do with her grandchildren during the school holidays or sleepovers and give to their Mums for Mothers Day, Birthday or Christmas.


  • I’ve got myself a set of these, courtesy of my grandson and my lovely daughter in law. I use them daily and even have a few spare, ready to use when my current ones wear out


  • Get them to draw some Xmas scenes and then voila! Xmas decor


  • Aww these are so cute. My little one will love it


  • This will be so much fun to do the kiddo. Love it totally.


  • Place mats are so useful for spills and messy eating. Great idea and very creative.


  • I used to do this with my kids artwork. Sometimes I gave them as gifts to grandparents as well as aunts and uncles


  • So many fun options for dinner


  • Love this! I need to get a laminator. My toddler will be so happy.


  • You could also laminate times tables or the alphabet for educational ones.


  • That is a quick and easy way to make place mats

    • Colouring in your name and laminating it would be an awesome place mat, you wouldn’t get mixed up with who’s is who’s.

      • What a great way to get children to practice writing their name!


  • These would make lovely presents for special people (Grandparents, teachers etc.) for Christmas.
