1. Contact paper (duh)
2. Yarn or any materials that will stick to the paper (twigs, leaves, tissue paper)
3. Tape (I always use blue painters tape because it comes off easily and doesn't ruin any surfaces)
4. And an easel (or a wall, cabinet, window or other flat surface)
What to do:
1. Cut a piece of contact paper to whatever size works for your space.
2. Peel off the backing and tape it into place sticky side out.
3. You can either put out pre-cut or pre-gathered materials or have the kids help gather materials and set them out with the contact paper.
4. I left this completely open ended with Busy! She started sticking the yarn and wood chips to the paper and created a masterpiece. For younger ones you can model how to stick pieces on the paper.
The Beans isn't quite tall enough to reach the easel with out a stool so I taped his piece of paper on the door window.
