When you’re preparing big meals for any occasion, it’s always wonderful to involve your child in any way you can. Looking to spruce up your table? Here’s a placemat your second grader can make, based on the classic frontier tradition of quilt making. Some second graders may be able to handle a needle and thread and a sewing machine, but if yours isn’t quite up to it, don’t worry. This project allows him to create a patchwork piece out of paper, no pins and needles required! To make the piece, he’ll need to practice good math skills of measurement and calculation. This activity also allows your child extra practice in combining geometric shapes, a skill which will continue to help him throughout each grade to come.
