Leaf Collage.

Our art activity didn't go as well as planned today, but it was still a fun learning experience. We've been talking about leaves this week, so we started off just exploring them.


Then we taped down some contact paper--sticky side up--and pressed our leaves onto it.


But it turns out that contact paper isn't as sticky as you might think, and our leaves were not as flat as they should have been. We stuck another piece of contact paper over the top and pushed some more.


But we could never really get it stuck down flat. Here's our imperfect finished product.


If you wanted to do this project, I'd recommend finding really flat leaves, and I think you need fewer leaves, and therefore, more area for the contact paper to stick to itself. We never worry too much about the finished product around here anyway!
