The leaves are changing colors on the trees! What a perfect time to make a personalized fall place mat for your little ones! We made these last year and the leaf colors aren't as vibrant as they had been when we first made them. We may have to sneak out and grab some new leaves and make another set this year.

Glue a photo of your child to the construction paper. I glued ours to a piece of solid white paper first, so that it was matted and stood out a bit.
Let your child arrange the leaves on the construction paper in any manner they wish to do.
When they are arranged to their liking, use a dab of glue to hold each in place.
Carefully cover the entire sheet of construction paper with a piece of clear contact paper, pressing out any air bubbles.
Cover the backside with contact paper as well.
Trim the edges of the place mat with a scissors and then enjoy using it daily!
