It’s that time of year again!! What to do with all those beautiful fall leaves the kids collect? Make a placemat!
Grass or seed heads
Go on a nature walk. Remember to bring a bag to collect treasures in!
Cut out two pieces of contact paper to the desired size of the placemat. Have the kids sort leaves so they have an idea of which ones they will use. Peel off the protective paper and lay the contact paper down sticky side up. Have the kids arange the leaves and any grasses or flowers they may have found, pretty side up.
Peel the second piece of paper. Have someone hold one side of the paper up, and slowly smooth the paper on from one side to the other. Cut overhanging edges. Now each member of the family has a personalized fall leaf placemat!
