Create a Contact Paper Collage

Activity Overview

Toddlers and young children will love the freedom of expression that comes along with making a collage. Using contact paper as an art medium creates even more independence for little ones, as the sticky surface receives the lightweight items in the bin extraordinarily well. All they have to do it select a spot and press the objects on to create a masterful collage piece of art.

You may want to set this activity out with themes in mind. Try placing a variety of items in the bin in a certain color scheme. It can foster a young child's learning and exploration of their world to find things that are all the color red for example. Learning through art is both satisfying and fun!

Materials Needed

  • Contact Paper
  • A variety of arts and craft supplies, magazines, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape

How to Make It

  1. Peel the backing off of a sheet of contact paper and tape it to the wall sticky side out. If you have an art easel or a window, they works well too.
  2. Lay out a try or bin of various craft supplies such as buttons,feathers, pom poms, sequins, paper scraps, fabric scraps, bottle caps, magazine clipped items and more.
  3. Stand back and allow your toddler to choose and arrange items in any way that they choose onto the sticky contact paper to create a beautiful collage.
