Setting the table - the Montessori Way!

I have always wanted to buy a placemat that helps a child to learn how to set a table. I never thought of making one myself until my friend Jodi put up a tutorial on her blog! Check it out here! I love the choice of fabric in her placemat below.

I tweaked her pattern a little bit to make one for my two year old. It is still a little rough around the edges (I am waiting for that promised serger from my mother-in-law) but I was so happy with how it turned out and the fact that my daughter LOVES using it!!


  1. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS! I'll be pullin' out my sewing machine in no time! And thank you for adding the link to the tutorial :)

  2. I used to do this (in laminated paper style) and put it in our kitchen play area at school. The kids loved it!
