Sticky Pictures!

Today's activity was dead simple and so much fun! All you need is this....
  • Contact paper
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Assorted bits to make the picture (Coloured paper, wrapping paper, cellophane, Pom poms, magazine cut outs, ribbon, bows, feathers, etc)

Use the masking tape to stick it to a surface (we used the back of the dining room door) sticky side facing out...then start sticking!

When the picture is complete you can preserve it by sticking a second piece of contact paper to the sticky side, and you could even place of frame of colored paper or cardboard around the edge. Bean is still pretty much in the 'create and destroy' phase, so i didn't back this one! But we'll give that a go next time.

With Bean madly teething at the moment and the weather outside being less than inspiring, i've needed to come up with spontaneous activities fast! This one was a hit!

  1. This would be a great activity after going for a walk when the kids pick up leaves, gum nuts, autumn leaves ( in season, of course), flowers, sticks, stones, feathers, etc. :)
