If you’ve never bought contact paper before, I suggest you get yourself one since there are so many fun activities that you can do using contact paper. It’s basically an adhesive paper used for covering or lining. So one of the sides is adhesive, and that’s the side that is used for many of our activities.
I remember when I first introduced contact paper to Alia (she was around 11 months old), she had zero interest in sticking things and she didn’t seem to like the sticky surface. But lately, she has become interested, YEAH! 😀
I put some contact paper up (adhesive side facing out) and gave her Blokus tiles (Yes, there will be some missing Blokus tiles… What was I thinking??!!). to stick on the paper. I was surprised to see her concentration. She’d put one tile at a time, and once they’re all up on the paper, she took them off and put them back in the bin. Later on, she’d go back to this activity again to stick a few back up.
On the Internet, there are many people that shared different arts and craft activities that you can do with your kids using contact paper. Sadly, I’ve only done one so far since Alia is more interested in playing with the tissue paper in some other way (throw them in the air :p). But I’m sure we’ll come up with something fun soon!
Go buy some contact paper and then search different activities using contact paper. I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. 😀
