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).
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.
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.
Here’s the bigger picture with his artwork “washing line” hanging above him. He looks so little!
