Spring Contact Paper Collage

This is a fun, easy way to engage your 1.5+ year old with art play. Loose parts can be modified to make this fun for every age and season!


  • Interesting loose parts that are flat enough to stick to contact paper (bits of paper and felt work nicely)
  • Divided tray
  • Tape for adhering contact paper to window
  • Contact paper


  1. Collect and set up the loose parts in divided tray.
  2. Hang contact paper on wall or window.
  3. Model the possibilities of how to use the materials.
  4. Let your child build and explore.

I usually leave contact paper play up for a week or more. Simply return loose parts to their tray each evening for a clean slate to play with every morning.

Have fun!
