I was inspired by the idea of a sticky collage over at A Mommy's Adventures so I decided to give it a try. I gave N (13 months) a piece of contact paper with the sticky side facing up. B and I cut different shapes out of construction paper and showed her how to stick them on. She was more intersted in the crinkling of the paper and less involved with the making of the collage. I will for sure try this again with her. This is such a neat first project for your baby. I like the way Michelle at A Mommy's Adventures backed hers with colored construction paper and saved it as her baby's first art piece.
B had fun making one too which proves this isn't just a "baby activity"!
We've also tried this same concept outdoors and created a Nature Collage.
