A sticky, mess free, sensory activity for young toddlers 👶🏻👧🏻🧒🏻
This is a super simple activity I set up at a playdate.🎉
I prepared a big piece of contact paper and a bunch of items for the toddlers to pick up and stick on the contact paper as a free play activity.
Contact paper can be purchased in any stationary shop. It is sticky on one side. It comes in different forms e.g. clear transparent, pearly, coloured, patterned etc.
Items to stick on:
👉🏻scrunched up coloured paper
and many more
(adult supervision is a must because of the small items)
For very young toddlers👶🏻, simply picking any items up and stick on the contact paper is a good way to practice their little hands🖐🏻.
Providing them a variety of textures and materials also help them to explore and develop their sensory skills🖐🏻.
They love to pull them off and place them on different area on the contact paper.
Let them do it, let them explore, let them free play😊
For older toddlers and preschoolers🧒🏻👧🏻, you can let them design pictures using the items provided.
You can set it up on their tables, or to be a bit special, set up on a wall or cupboard door, so they are working on a vertical surface.
