First, I pressed the leaves a little. They were not totally dry when I laminated them so they kept some of their flexibility during lamination. I didn't add magnets as it was suggested, maybe next year we'll do this activity again and display them on the fridge.
Then we did some of the activities the Teaching Mama recommended. (On that site you can find tons of great ideas to entertain and educate you kids of all ages. I can highly recommend to follow it.)
- Colour sorting
- Arranging leaves by size
- Matching similar leaves
- Making leaf faces with googly eyes and pop-pom noses (I drew the mouths E. did the rest)
- Making leaf people (revising major body parts like arms, legs, upper body and feet)
You can see here the nice new orange and red leaves we found in the park. The big middle figure is Daddy, because "He's soooo big".
- Using the laminated leaves as rubbing plates
