I have a new project for you guys! I randomly thought of it while on the airplane.
Sticky Zoo Collage
You will need: Contact Paper, Permanent Marker, tape, and pictures of animals.
I cut most of our pictures out the magazine sent by our local zoo for being members. Also, it may be better not to overwhelm the child with too many pictures at once. I think my 3 year old was a bit frustrated having to sort through them. Here we go:
Step 1: Cut your contact paper and lay it on the counter, clear side up.
Step 2: Draw your zoo map. Include as much or as little as you want. You could even have your child help with this if they are interested.
Step 3: Turn the contact paper over and tape it down as you peel the cover off. You should tape it so that the sticky side is up.
Step 4: Give your child some animal cut outs and let them fill the zoo however they want. You may need to stick a few on there to show the younger ones how to do it.
Above, I included some construction paper cutouts taped to the non-sticky side to provide more color. I was hoping to get the child to think about different environments but I didn’t force the issue.
Mr. 1 enjoyed the project once he figured out what to do. Mr. 3 wanted to put the animals into his safari truck and drive them to the zoo.
