Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers

Nearly all our art and crafts activities take place at the kitchen table, so I thought I would mix it up a little by working on this sticky wall art in the living room.

I cut out a large piece of contact paper, removed the backing and taped it to the wall, sticky side out. I then set out a bowl of items to stick on (feathers, foam shapes, buttons, googly eyes, mini pompoms, straws, cut-up pipe cleaners etc).Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers - a fun process art activity

Note: If your child puts everything in its mouth you’ll want to make sure nothing is too small – one of the benefits of this activity is that they can go to it when they want, which means they may not always be 100% supervised.

DAY 1
F enjoyed searching through the bowl and checking out all the different pieces. He happily started sticking items to the contact paper. The pompoms didn’t really stick for some reason, so I surreptitiously removed them.Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers - a fun process art activity

DAY 2
The next day he went back to the collage at his leisure. The feathers were a particular favourite.Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers - a fun process art activity
DAY 3
The day after he pulled up a chair for some serious study of his artwork.Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers - a fun process art activity
DAY 4
Nearly all the items came off and he started again. But that is part of the fun!

DAY 5

Well you get the idea by now! Each day he’d go back to the collage several times, change it around and add things. I don’t see any reason to take it down yet – it’s such great open ended play.Sticky Wall Art for Toddlers - a fun process art activity
