Frosty Winter Wall – Sticky Mural

The Sticky Mural activity we did a while back was a big hit with my LOs. Ever since, they love contact paper activities. We used to have murals up once in few weeks and play with any sticky materials, sometimes just paper – tear/cut & stick. Frosty Winter Wall is one such simple fine motor activity for kids that boosts their creativity while exploring different textures & shapes.๐Ÿ‘

What you need

  • Contact paper
  • Painters tape
  • Cotton balls
  • White pompoms
  • Q tips
  • Cotton pads
  • White felt snowman
  • White felt snowflake
  • White felt tree

How to

  • Stick the contact paper on the wall or a window, sticky side out. We taped a large area on the wall, well enough for them to share & play.
  • Give your LOs the loose parts to explore.
  • The snowman, snowflake & tree is not necessary, but my LOs wanted it to create a winter scene around. They were not into the pompoms. You can choose to add other loose parts according to your kids needs/ interests.

Miss A(3yrs) & Miss D(2yrs) had a lot of fun with this activity. Miss D was all about the q tips and cotton balls. We made some snowflakes with them and then she randomly placed them all over. She was busy playing with the felt snowman and snowballs(cotton balls). Miss A said the q tips were christmas lights (thats right, they still talk about christmas ๐Ÿ˜ณ)  and decorated it around the felt tree. Then she added more hanging lights to the scene saying it looked just like our neighbours christmas lights (they had the dripping ice lights on ๐Ÿ˜€). We also made a snowman with the cotton pads and gave him q tip hands. The cotton balls when stamped on the contact paper leaves a fluffy residue. Miss A said it looked like snow. Then the girls stamped the whole area with cotton balls until nothing could stick on the contact paper anymore. ๐Ÿ˜‚ It gave a perfect frosted look to our wall. I loved to watch them play & enjoyed listening to their stories. We did this activity on a freezing snow day- we couldnt get outside and it kept them busy all morning๐Ÿ˜€
