We finally made a successful collage! I saw the idea to put the contact paper up on the wall here at Peaceful Parenting, and it made all the difference. I simply taped a piece of contact paper up on the wall and gave Red a variety of materials to stick on it. I went with all green since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. We used pieces of foam, construction paper, pipe cleaner, pom poms, bows, ribbon, feathers and shredded paper confetti.
It was a great way to play while reinforcing shapes, texture and color. I also really liked that I can leave the supplies out and available for Red to come back and add more any time.
Now my kitchen has a festive little art installation for St. Patrick’s Day.
