This place mat can be used everyday (its laminated) or just Thanksgiving each year. Paint the child's hand as shown below and press down on the very left side of the paper. On the right side I draw an outline of corn and the children color the stalks green and use Q-tips to make the kernels. In the center (not shown) I put a picture of the child (framed). On the bottom write "I am thankful for (ask child what they are thankful for and write it here). Laminate! They can decorate around the edges to add their own creative flare.
