I love this sticky paper art activity as a quick go-to indoor activity for my son when he needs something to focus on. I love focusing on one color at a time and mixing things up with different textures, shapes and materials. He’s using his fine motor skills and getting a bit of sensory experience in there as well.
It’s super easy to set up!
Three Pain-free Steps:
1. Attach a length of contact paper, sticky side out to an easel or wall.
2. Make available a large quantity of collage type materials: torn up papers, buttons, feathers, gems, poms, fabrics, etc.
3. Step Away
Since Kiddo is currently in a one-color-at-a-time phase, I extended the activity a bit by providing a box full of different colored materials and Kiddo sorted out all the orange items. When he was finished he liked pulling all the bits off and so the stick paper is waiting for the next time we need a quick boredom buster!
