Sticky Mural for kids

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.๐Ÿ˜€ If your LOs are still in the stage where everything goes on the mouth, this may not suit them. 

What you need

  • Contact paper
  • Painters Tape
  • Random art supplies – What we used – Pompom, straw, feather, pipecleaner, felt pieces, you could also use – foam pieces, ribbons, lace, buttons, cotton balls – Just anything really

    How to

    • Tape the contact paper sticky side out onto any surface – Window, Wall, Door, Table.
    • Give your kids any or all of the art supplies mentioned. 
    • Let them stick it onto the contact paper and explore.

    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. ๐Ÿ˜œ 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.๐Ÿ˜€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. ๐Ÿ‘
