15 Minutes : Know It : Setting The Table

The holidays are just around the corner. Now is a perfect time to teach your child(ren) about table etiquette because in a few weeks they will be able to apply it.
Start out with the basics like how to properly set a table for a formal event. Years ago I came across a template on Martha Stewart's website. I have used it many many times for both teaching young children and also adults. I think it's just adorable. Download it here

Put your kids to the test by letting them arrange the setting on their own at first, I'm sure there will be a few extra spoons and forks they won't know what to do with. Then you can show them the correct way. Be sure to practice first may actually learn something too!
