I just discovered contact paper and have totally fallen in love. Hehe. Chasing Cheerios did a texture collage using contact paper and numerous other blogs were using it to make suncatchers.
So a few days ago I bought some and gave Bear a tiny square of it today. She loved the stickiness of it and kept putting her fingers and hand all over it. (Great sensory activity.)
Then I gave her scraps of paper (from her cutting practice) that I cut down into little shapes, yarn, and cotton balls and yarn and she enjoyed sticking them onto the paper.
We’d done texture collages before but with liquid white glue and it was slightly messy. I love that contact paper is totally mess free. I also figure I can use it to “laminate” flash card type things, which will be much easier than using packing tape as I have been doing.
