This is a great activity that promotes discussion and develops observation skills.
Select some leaves from your garden or the local park. Carefully place each leaf on the sticky surface of clear contact.
Place another layer of clear contact over the leaves and trim the edges.
Smooth out any bubbles or creases.
Hang for display and discussion.
Thought provoking questions-
* What is the difference between this leaf and this leaf?
* Which leaf is the largest/smallest?
* What colours can you see?
* How many leaves have we displayed?
Love to hear more of your ideas. This one is inspired by Crayon Freckles.

What a great project, and not too complicated (my favorite kind!)

Thank you kindly Big City Mom
There are not as many hours as I want to share with my child. So when we do see flowers, when the end of the day arrives, I lay them between pages of a thick book to dry flat so we can make an artbook some other day together.
Oh Prema, that sounds absolutely wonderful too. I haven’t pressed flowers in years. I’m adding it to my ‘to do’ list. Thank you lovely.
