The activity for day 13 of the Hands on Play Challenge was to create sticky art. I decided to pull out some contact paper for Mina to play on while Maisy was at school.
I started out trying to do this play challenge like I had seen on Pinterest...
But we just couldn't get our toothpicks to stick. I don't know if it's because our contact paper wasn't the brand name. Apparently it just wasn't sticky enough.
Fortunately, I had been saving some of our crayon wrappers for another idea I had seen on Pinterest, but never gotten around to. Mina loved sticking all the different colored papers on to the sheet.
She liked naming all the colors and counting how many she had put onto the sheet. I helped her to make an "M" on the sheet.
Of course when Maisy came home from school she wanted to join in the fun, too. She had her own ideas on how to do her collage - just throw it on and hope it sticks.
Or else just smack it on.
When the girls were done with their creations, I cut to fit another piece of contact paper to seal it up and then stuck them to the window.
Making collages with contact paper is so much fun, but the best part about it is that it's mess-free.
What other materials do your kids like to stick to contact paper when making a collage?
