Have you tried collage on contact? It can be done lots of different ways but this is the way we did it this time around.
You will need...
- Clear contact
- Various collage items - eg. cotton wool, confetti, patty pans, coloured paper, tissue paper etc
- Masking tape
The first step is to stick the contact to the table top. We did ours in one long piece but it can be cut into smaller squares or any shape at all. I wanted my girls to work on this art project together so the bigger the contact space the better. All you do to stick the contact down is place the contact sticky side up and begin to peel away a small part of the back. Fold the end's edge back on itself and stick it to the table. To make sure it is secure run some masking tape along where the contact meets the table. Continue to peel back the backing to reveal the sticky side. Do the same as before when you get to the length of contact you want, of course cutting it first. Your contact should now be ready for the fun part.
Put the collage items out and let the kids go wild creating a masterpiece on the sticky side of the contact.You can display your contact collage on a window or wall or simply fold it up and put it in the bin. (when the kids are not looking) Ours has made it on to our front windows for the time being.
Sticking without glue makes this activity a breeze to clean up! You'll have it tidied up in no time with the help of your little artists. Well I'm off to plan some more fun. Hopefully we can get out and about tomorrow.
