Toddler Activity – Autumn Plate Mats

Found this activity at Family Fun and thought it would be great to do with my kids. We have leaves everywhere……………..


Glue or glue stick

Construction paper

Acrylic paint and brushes

Con-Tact paper




Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. Start with a pile of leaves, some energetic kids and a camera. After the pictures are developed, pick one that captures the spirit of the day and glue it onto a place mat-sized piece of paper.
2. Decorate the border with drawings or leaf prints (lightly paint the back of a leaf with acrylic paint, then press onto the paper).
3. Once dry, laminate with clear Con-Tact paper or, for about $3 each, splurge and have the place mats professionally laminated at a copy shop.

I will let you see the pics when we are done…………….
