Sticky Fun

Lay a sheet of contact paper down on the floor, sticky side up, and tape it down. Put some of your child’s favorite toys on the paper, and show him how the stuff sticks. To baby, this is mystifying and fascinating. Show him how he can stick his own hands down, and how cool it feels to pull them off.  Next, try taping the contact paper to the wall.
