I am obsessed with the colorful leaves this time of year! My kids and I love to pick up leaves when we are on walks, but they quickly get old and we can’t use them for anything. I decided to try using my laminator to preserve the leaves. It worked great! Here are some really fun activities to do with laminated leaves!
I used my favorite laminator to preserve the leaves. Simply put them in the laminating sheets and slide them through the laminator.
It’s fun to have a variety of leaves.
Then I glued magnets to the back of the laminated leaves.
We also made patterns with the colored leaves.
We sorted the leaves by color.
And we ordered the leaves by size.
Then we stuck our leaf magnets to the refrigerator! We made letters with the leaves.
Troy said these leaves are mom and her three boys.
And we did some more sorting by colors.
And then we just filled the whole fridge with leaves!
This would be a great activity for a toddler. Just make sure you supervise and the magnets are super glued to the back! I think I’ll be using this activity the next time I need to keep my little ones busy when I’m making supper!
I loved these laminated leaves! They are great because you can reuse these for a long time. A couple years ago we put leaves in between contact paper and they preserved them well, so I know these laminated will keep nicely.
Lastly, if you are a teacher, this would be a great activity for a learning center. 🙂
Hope you’ll try these leaves activities this fall!
