This real leaf collage is made using paper punches to combine as many fall colors onto one collage as possible!

We’ve actually made three other types of leaf collage in the past:
- Crushed Leaf Collage – this uses real leaves, but dry ones
- Fall Leaf Punch Collage – we use fall-themed paper and a leaf-shaped paper punch to make this collage
- Real Leaf Sorting Board – I laminated whole real leaves and used them for a sorting activity for my toddler
So this real leaf collage combines elements from all four previous activities!
To make this new version, we used:
- Real leaves in a variety of colors and shapes
- ½” circle paper punch
- 1″ circle paper punch
- White card cut to 5×7″
- Glue stick
- 5×7″ laminator pouches
After collecting our leaves, we set about punching circles from them. Feeding the leaves was actually quite tricky, so I did this while my son punched out the circles.
The punched leaf circles looked like pretty confetti!
Then we glued them onto the white card.
I carefully slipped the collage into a laminator pocket, and ran it through the laminator. F loved watching this part!
And here’s the preserved real leaf collage!
