How to Laminate Using Contact Paper

Contact paper is a cheap way of laminating all of your fun preschool printable games and activities. There are a couple of ways you can do this. 

After printing out a preschool game on cardstock, I like to cut out a piece of contact paper before cutting out the game pieces.  I cover the entire 8.5"x11" paper with the contact paper on ONE side. Then I cut out the game pieces. You could cover both sides if you want, but I've found one side to be sufficient. It keeps the ink from smearing and sticky hands from smudging the image. 

You can write on pieces that are covered in contact paper with dry erase marker, but be to not let it sit for too long without wiping it off. 

Be sure to use clear transparent contact paper. Contact paper is found in the kitchen section at your local Walmart, or you can purchase it on amazon by clicking the link below.
