Find Your Place Pins

Have your child make a place pin to suit each person in your party—then give him free rein to make the seat assignments (just don't be surprised to find Junior at the head of the table!).

What You'll Need

  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Birch wood slices
  • Superglue
  • Napkins

Tip: Set the table the night before! It’s one less thing to worry about on the big day.

What To Do

  1. Paint designs, initials, or names onto small birch wood slices (at craft stores), and allow them to dry.
  2. Then use gel superglue (an adult’s job) to attach pin backs to the back of the slices; let dry for several hours.
  3. Pin them to napkins—until your guests wear them for the meal

Bonus: Each of these turns into a sweet take-home!
