Are you as in love with contact paper as I am? There are so many things you can do with it, like this Contact Paper Shape Art that we made. Today I am going to highlight an easy contact paper idea – a Tissue Paper Sticky Window. What makes this contact paper art so unique is the sticky surface where kids will be creating.
Contact Paper Art
I do many projects with A and B but it’s harder to find things for C since she is 18 months old and still loves to put everything in her mouth. But this activity is perfect for little ones.
Cut up some pieces of tissue paper. I like to use all different colors but if you were studying a particular color it would be pretty to have different shades of that color.
Next, peel off the backing on some contact paper and tape it to a wall or window. This is always tricky for me and I usually end up with the contact paper all stuck together. So after you untangle it and you little one gets their hands on it, it will look something like this.
C had tons of fun just sticking and unsticking her hands. I then gave her the tray of tissue paper and demonstrated how to stick it on. She loved saying “stick” as she placed each piece of tissue paper.
Eventually she just started squishing and throwing the remaining tissue paper so this was all C added. But no project is safe when you have a sibling. Big sis A came along and added her own spin.
A found the tissue paper wrapper and crumpled it up and added it to the mix.
I think it gives it flair!
What are you waiting for? Try some contact paper art with your kids.
If you are looking for more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
