Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and if you are looking for a fun way for your children to get involved in a holiday craft and welcome the season into your home, then you should look no further. This easy to follow guide to creating your own Thanksgiving table cloth will be a memory that can be cherished with your family for so many years to come. Your children will love being able to create something that will be used a table cloth on Thanksgiving day, and be a memory they will share for a life time.
Before you begin to create your Thanksgiving table cloth, you are first going to have to gather the materials that will be needed. You will need a plain colored table cloth, any color that you would like but white or a cream color always works best so that you could easily use a variety of colors. Fabric paint is also something you will need, since you will want to wash this table cloth and the fabric paint will ensure that the painted images won’t wash off. And finally, if you are wanting to sponge paint different items such as turkeys or leaves, you can find these sponges at craft stores.
To begin, you will want to place the table cloth on a flat surface that will allow your children to freely decorate without getting paint on household items. You can next give them brushes, or sponges and let them paint what they would like the table cloth. If you are looking for a Thanksgiving theme, you can easily find the sponges I had mentioned earlier and use those by dipping them in the paint and having your children dab the images all over the table cloth. You could also have them paint the palm of their hands and them place their hands around the table cloth so that they will always have their hand prints on the Thanksgiving table cloth.
There is really no limit to what you could create with this craft. Your children will just love creating something to be gushed about at Thanksgiving by friends and family, and you can always cherish this table cloth as years carry on and your children grow into adults.
