ABC Herbarium

This is last of the 5 days series Fun Ways to Play with ABC’s – Natural Materials – hosted by Something 2 Offer.

I chose making a herbarium as my theme as we often pick up leaves and flowers and make craft with them or preserve them in various ways.

Our recent herbarium was intended for practicing letters of the alphabet. It can be complicated to practice writing words and  sentences. And, as a great gift idea – birthday or anniversary  wishes.

Contact paper and leaves ABC’s
1. Cut out squares or rectangles out of the cereal boxes and stick the leaves on them with the scotch tape.
2. Draw letters on contact paper and cut them out.
3. Stick the letters on the leaves. These will make pretty ABC cards. You can use clear contact paper to preserve them for longer period of time.
