The sticky tactile surface is perfect for sticking up almost anything. In fact the surface itself is fun for your child to touch!

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!

Contact Paper or Sticky Paper. This is how it looks when you first unroll it.

Putting Up Your Letter A Sticky Wall

Contact paper has one side that is very very sticky, so unrolling it and taping it to a wall can be a little tricky. Here’s how I do it:

Step 1

Stick the sticky wall up on the wall using small rolled up pieces of tape in the four corners. Make sure the paper backing side is facing out.

Step 2

Peel the paper backing off to expose one small corner of the sticky paper. Continue peeling the paper backing off until one side is exposed. Tape that side down fully using Painter’s tape. This will ensure that it doesn’t fall down as your child is playing.

Step 3

Slowing peel back the remaining paper backing and tape down the other side.

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:

  1. Learning Activities;
  2. Seasonal Activities; and
  3. Arts & Crafts and Fun Activities.

    What a smart idea. Thank you for your share. Kids will love this. Can the sticky paper be reused? Because i plan to use this idea at our daycare for the kids activity.

      Thank you! Absolutely! Although it largely depends on what I am sticking up, I do regularly reuse my contact paper. I will leave it taped up but remove the activity and have my kids redo it several times. Make sure to buy good quality contact paper if you want to use the same sheet several times.
