Easiest table setting I ever did.
Who knew I had so many different types of crayons?
Run a stripe of brown paper down the center of the table.
Add crayons and children.
I also (later) added candles, food, other people, dishes, etc.
Oh! And my 5 year old wrote people's names above their place settings so it worked as a place card too!
The kids loved getting to draw on the "tablecloth" during dinner, and it certainly kept them occupied longer than usual so we could have a wee bit more adult conversation before they needed our help.
