|One of our many buckets filled with stickers, pom poms, papers and recycled bits and pieces for sticking!|
|A favourite go-to activity at the moment. Box of crafty bits and bobs, glue and coloured card. Et voila! Busy, happy kids!|
|Sticking recycled materials onto sticky-back plastic (contact paper) on the window|
Put a large piece of contact paper (sticky-back plastic) onto a window, door or even table top, sticky side facing outwards. Then simply stick all the “treasures” straight onto the sticky surface to create a wonderful, easy, three-dimensional, collaborative art work!
|Cakie and Pop’s collaborative window masterpiece this summer! It was HUGE!|
Don’t have contact paper and not keen on using any glue? What about this sticky picture alternative?!
Find some craft foam sheets and cut them into random shapes and sizes. (They do not need to be anything at all, not like in this picture!) In fact, even better, get your child to have a go at cutting them out!
|Pop sticking foam shapes to the window with water and enjoying the process hugely!|
Take a pot of water and paintbrushes and simply stick the foam shapes straight onto a window, fridge door or tiles around the bath! The simpler the shapes, the more open-ended the art work. As you can see, even little babies can enjoy this!
SO many ways to create a sticky art work! What other materials can you use? Show us your ideas and remember to play, play, play for at least 15 minutes, without interruption.
|Or how about just stickers on a cardboard box?!|
[Please remember, this is just a play prompt. You are not being asked to replicate any of the ideas exactly from this 30 Day Challenge! We hope to spark an idea for an activity and give an opportunity to try something a bit different each day and the emphasis is very much on having relaxed, good fun and a really engaged play session.]
