Contact paper activities! Who doesn’t love a good sticky wall! By their very nature they are completely made for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
The sticky tactile surface is perfect for sticking up almost anything. In fact the surface itself is fun for your child to touch!
So in honour of one of my favourite items to do activities with, I have pulled together a fun list of activities where you can use sticky paper (or contact paper as it is also known as).
These activities can be done inside or outside; during Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer and are good for learning or just for play!
If this is your first time using contact paper you will quickly learn to love it. If you are looking for it at a store near you, try looking at a stationery store. Another great thing about contact paper is that it can actually be used more than once!

Preparing your Sticky Wall
Unroll the contact paper and cut off the size required for the activity. The back of the contact paper has lines that you can follow.
Contact paper has one side that is very sticky so unrolling it and taping it to the wall can be a little tricky. Here’s how I do it.
First, peel the paper backing to expose one small corner of the sticky paper, then tape that corner to the wall, sticky side facing out. Slowing peel back the backing to reveal the other corner, tape that side down. Repeat for the other two corners.
Now comes the fun part – the activities!
Here is the list of FUN activities to do with contact paper:
I have broken the list down into 3 parts:
- Learning Activities;
- Seasonal Activities; and
- Arts & Crafts and Fun Activities.
