We continued our love/hate relationship with sticky contact paper today for Day 11 of the 31 Day Sensory Play Challenge – sticky play! After months of practise I may be getting better at applying contact paper to a window! I used a single roll of 33cm x 1m clear adhesive film purchased from Tesco and attached it to the window with sellotape, ensuring the sticky side was facing us. I placed a range of coloured felt shapes into three bowls and let Adam explore the resources.
Adam immediately placed the shapes onto the sticky contact paper. As he was putting them on he automatically told me what the colours were. So we went one step further and added the shape name too. It wasn’t too long before he was saying both the colour and the shape.
Adam loved placing his fingers on the contact paper and pulling them off again quickly. It made a great sound. Just like our Sheep Window Art activity, Adam preferred taking the shapes off of the contact paper and putting them back into the bowls! However,the process was a great fine motor skills activity.
