Toddler Ideas Tuesday: October 21st, 2014

Welcome back to Toddler Idea Tuesdays! I am sorry this post is so late this week. Our internet went out during the morning and didn't come back on until after supper. I hope you will still join with me again in sharing the fun activities, crafts, and lessons that you are doing with your young children. 

Today I wanted to share the craft I did with the preschool group at our homeschool co-op last week. We made the Fall Leave Frames that we made last year.

Here are the instructions:

I used my paper cutter to cut a one inch frame out of two pieces of construction paper for each picture. And I cut 2 pieces of clear contact paper to fit just a bit over the inside of the frame. I laid one piece of the contact paper sticky side up and put one frame on top.

The children were able to pick leaves from those we gathered the previous week on our nature walk.

They placed them on the sticky side of the contact paper. I put the other piece on top of it to protect it, then I glued the second frame on to finish it off.

Now onto:

  1. This is a great craft to do with the kids for fall, we have tons of colors of leafs in the yard right now. Red, yellow, orange, and some green. Would be perfect right now to make these with.
