My children love to collect leaves, twigs, and flowers petals anytime we are outside.  We have quite a collection!

But what can we do with all of these “treasures”?

Make a collage!

On our most recent walk to the park, my daughter brought her Elmo bucket along to help her collect items she wanted to keep.  Once we got home, we emptied out her bucket to see what interesting items she had collected.

The leaves and flower looked so pretty together that I wanted to try to preserve them.  But how?

I bought some clear Con-Tact Paper at Target and we made nature collages.

First, I taped the non-sticky side of the Con-Tact Paper to the table.  The paper backing is facing up.

Taping the Con-Tact paper to the table isn’t necessary but it made it a lot easier for my three year old to work with it because the edges didn’t roll up.
