Sticky Mural is an easy & fun activity which i found in Pinterest. Murals are a great way of learning. Kids learn so much with this simple activity – color recognition, shape recognition, develop fine motor skills, feeling & exploring different textures. This activity is perfect for Toddlers & Preschoolers and they will love to do it over and over again.😀 If your LOs are still in the stage where everything goes on the mouth, this may not suit them.

I planned this activity for Miss D(23 months). But to my surprise Miss A(3 yrs) loved it too. They both enjoyed sticking & peeling different art supplies provided to them. Felt leaves were Miss As favourite. Miss D loved straws & felt leaves. They both didn’t really care about the other items. 😜 Miss D liked to stick her hand onto it. I could say she was trying to explore the new sticky feeling. Miss A was arranging the felt leaves in different patterns. They both tried to color sort – all orange or all red, then group sorting – only feathers, only felt leaves.. Its great to see how they learn while having fun.😀I left the contact paper on our patio door for a couple of days. They kept going to it every now and then. Its really interesting how such simple activities keeps kids occupied for a long time. I did not have painters tape so used regular elmers clear tape to stick it to my patio door. Next time im getting the painters tape, so we could do a large area on the wall. 👍
