Crafts with common household goods are my fave. (I wrote a big ol’ book about it, after all!) And if they are free goods, even better! These brown paper bag placemats are adorable and can absolutely be made by the kids! I first made a version of these placemats for a segment on The Meredith Viera Show last December! (You can see the clip here!) But, they are so fun for any dinner, especially a Thanksgiving diner where you can utilize the brown bag as a canvas to doodle on before you dine! These make great Thanksgiving crafts for kids!
