- Cut an equal size portion of the contact paper, and tape it down with the sticky side up.
- Place the leaf on the contact paper.
- Set up the tissue paper beside it, and encourage your child to fill it in!
- When your child is finished, cut another portion of contact paper of equal size and place it sticky side down on top of the image.

Tips with Miss Charlotte
Make one along with your little one and hang them up side-by-side in the window. Your child will feel connected to you every time the sun shines through!
