When it comes to planning your Easter gathering with friends and family, you've probably gotten all the supplies for the egg hunt (basket, plastic eggs, candy), food for the meal, and flowers for the table. Everything is set, and you're ready for the guests to arrive, but adding a few additional details will make your Easter celebration even more special.

Whether you have a table solely for the kids or everyone will sit together, arrange a special place setting for the little ones with these free printable placemat designs. Chances are kids will be a little distracted during the meal—whether because they're coming down from a sugar high after searching for eggs or anticipating the post-meal hunt. These placemats will keep them occupied since each is a coloring page complete with a word search.

Let youngsters choose their favorite design: traditional Easter motifs, eggs, flowers, or geometric bunnies. Just place them at each table setting with a couple of crayons; kids will have fun—and remain seated through the meal (or at least most of it). Before you place the mats on the table, write each child's name on the placemat so they can find their seats when it's time to eat.

To print them out, use legal-sized paper for a large placemat or stick with regular 8.5" x 11" sheets. And don't forget to make some extra copies; the adults might also want to join in on the coloring activity. Download them below.
