Thanks to everyone that joined us at 5th St Public Market on Presidents' Day to assemble first aid kits for the Eugene Mission and color placemats for Meals on Wheels! Today we're sharing the placemat designs with you so everyone can color some placemats, donate them to your local Meals on Wheels, and brighten up someone's meal.
Service Project: Coloring placemats to be donated to Meals on Wheels
Prep time: none
Duration: 15 minutes (plus drop-off to Meals on Wheels)
Lesson(s) learned: We can all serve in small and simple ways and let our creativity shine.
How we did it: We've made placemats in the past for Meals on Wheels and they've always been well received. There's something about cute little kid art that brings a smile to old folks, no matter the quality of the artwork. We made fall placemats and winter placemats so it's about time we made spring placemats.
To use these, simply click on the image and print. They should be about 8.5" x 11" but choose "fit to page" on your print settings just to be sure that it fills in your entire paper no matter what size paper you use. Color as you wish and deliver to your local Meals on Wheels branch.
Now for a little warning: Please only use these for serving others; as in, don't try to steal the images and use them for your own commercial benefit. Just don't be that person.
Now for the designs:
What signals the start of spring better than some bright birds and blossoms?
Kids at the First Baptist community service fair as well as Coburg Charter School also enjoyed coloring spring placemats for Meals on Wheels.
And, lastly, an open-ended one for your creative artist to design their own artwork.
Hope you enjoy these placemats and find ways to use them to help others!
