Contact Paper Collage

December 5, 2011

A few months ago I taped a piece of contact paper to a window, gave PlumGirl a tub of squares of paper, and let her have some fun.  She enjoyed herself, but the activity did not last long.

Inspired by this wonderful toothpick collage over at Let Kids Create, I decided to try the activity again.  This time PlumGirl was much more excited about it.  PlumGirl even helped hand the contact paper as she loves to help whenever I am using tape.  She also enjoyed naming the colors as she stuck them on.

It was a good thing we started during the PlumTwins’ nap time, because as soon as they noticed the new attraction hanging on the window they were obsessed.  Luckily, PlumGirl was very excited about showing her brother exactly what the activity was all about.   She showed them the tub of paper, how she picked out a piece, told them the color of the paper, and then demonstrated how to stick it on.  They loved it!

Plum1 was especially entranced by the stickiness of the contact paper.  He kept crawling back and pressing his hand against it over and over again up until bedtime.
