Contact Paper Collage

Nov 28, 2012

What you need:

  • Clear contact paper 
  • Collage materials — felt, ribbon, paper scraps (construction, wrapping, tissue) 
  • Construction paper (optional) 

What to do:

  1. Cut a piece of clear contact paper — approximately 12 to 15 inches square — and peel off the back.
  2. Provide your child with collage materials, and encourage her to stick them to the contact paper. She may want to put them on and then just peel them off again.
  3. While she's making her collage, talk with her about the materials she is using — their colors and textures. Point out how sticky the contact paper feels.
  4. When she is finished, place another piece of clear contact paper on top. Alternatively, place a piece of construction paper on top and then flip the collage over so it shows through the other side of the contact paper.
