    I worked at a teacher supply store for 3 summers (away from the classroom, but not too far!) I can't tell you how many teachers came in with beautifully colored decorations and posters only to be told they couldn't be laminated. These teachers used either crayon or cray-pas on their work. These materials smear under the high heat of the laminator. Whatever you do, don't use crayons or cray-pas!

    Could you enlarge the pictures onto the appropriate colored construction paper, cut out the pieces, and assemble them? You could then use marker to accent your work.

    Another point, keep in mind that most laminating machines don't take material wider than 35 inches. Something to think about as you create something you want laminated!

    Hope this helped,
