Before I get started on filling you in on our newest craft project, I thought I'd update on the little boy's test grade. He had a 260 question test and received a grade of 77%. That's a terrific grade, considering there was a lot of stuff on the test that hasn't been covered in our curriculum as of yet. Also, I did mark him wrong for the questions he just didn't answer. (He was giving me a bit of a hard time.) We don't like "grades" at Suaemoc, though...it's just to see if the kiddos are up to par. ;)
Now, to fill you in on our newest endeavor...
Football Team Placemats!
(When ours are finished, we'll post some pictures.)
Clear Contact Paper
Cut 10 strips of construction paper [blue/red for the Patriots ;)], each should be approximately 2 inches thick and 24 inches long. Lay them down side by side and secure the tops with a piece of tape.
Cut 12 strips of paper, whichever color you want (again blue or red! LOL), each should be approximately 2 inches wide by 22 inches long. You will use these pieces to weave through your taped pieces.
Weave each piece through the taped pieces until you get your completed placemat.
Once your placemat is done, find the matching graphic for your favorite team, print it out, or cut graphics out of a magazine, and glue onto your placemat. Once you get the design the way you want to, cover both sides with clear contact paper and it will last for a long, long time!
If you decide to make some, too ~ won't you share them with us?? :D
