Mats from calendars

Happy New Year.

Today, we decided to reuse some old calendar pictures. It seemed sad to throw them away so I let my little people cut and stick. Miss Belle wanted to write so that she had a different mat for each meal.
No, I don't teach filled in "a"s.

I laminated the results and teatime has already been used!

There are still plenty of old calendar pictures. I had envisaged a more collage type effect which would use up more calendar but the children weren't so keen on this idea- perhaps another project for another day.

  1. I love this idea Sarah. I have some lovely floral pictures from an old calendar that would work well for this too. Maybe I could make some cup mats. Thanks for the idea :)
