Inside: Build a Car Sticky Wall is a creative and easy toddler activity! Let them build a fire truck, garbage truck and more! This sticky wall is a great activity for any truck lover!
Car Sticky Wall
To create this sticky wall first unroll your contact paper and use masking tape to tape it up with the sticky side facing out. It can be a little tricky. The way I like to do this is by sticking a small piece of tape behind the four corners of the contact paper and stick it up before peeling the paper off. Then I hold on corner and peel the paper off (trying not to tear it because I can use it again to save the contact paper).
Then I removed the small pieces of tape in the corners as I place the masking tape all around the contact paper.
Take your foam sheets and cut out the shape of a car, fire truck and garbage truck or any other type of vehicle your little one is into. I used red and green for the fire and garbage truck, respectively.
Cut out some tires and windows as well. For the fire truck I cut out a line to represent the latter. Try to make each window and tire about the same size so that they will work for any vehicle.
Have your double sided tape ready for when your little one is ready to build.
Invite them to come and build a car or truck of their own! Start off with the body of the car then the tires.
Once they have those down tell them they their cars need windows! Put a small piece of double side tape on the back of each window and let them stick them up on the cars.
My 27 month old twins loved this fun car building activity and as soon as they were done wanted to try doing it again!
To do it again simple pull down all the vehicles and starting building again. The windows with the double sided tape came off as well and they were about to repeat this aspect of the activity as well!
Saving Your Contact Paper
You can save your contact paper for multiple activities. After you are done playing with the contact paper replace the paper backing back on the sticky surface.
When you are ready to use it again simple pull back the paper backing and use it again. I’ve been able to reuse my contact paper multiples times with this method!
