Dinner Blessings #6

My little guy (6 years old) gets board sometimes between the minutes of....ohhh...let's see....3:30 and 4:00. Right after school, before everyone gets home...and sometimes he doesn't want to go outside or run around. He wants to veg in front of the TV or video games. Huh-uh! Nope...not gonna happen. So I have something fun for him in his "secret cupboard" that he loves to do during those few minutes of boredom.

I purchased some large construction paper at Target. It's the 9x12 size, thick and hardy just for him. He has his special box of markers, crayons, and stickers. He gets out 7 pieces of paper and makes homemade place mats for each person in our family. He draws pictures, puts stickers, and many times his pictures are "gratitude" pictures. He draws sweet little pictures of his sisters doing something nice for him, or him and his dad playing catch together. He then puts them all in their places around the table, and the twins even have one on their highchairs.

This is a great motivator for him to help set the table too. He's learning Mondays are his day to make place mats and set the table for the family. So go stock up on some large paper and let your little ones create personalized place mats for dinner...it's a sweet little blessing that everyone can enjoy!
