Create an adorable Santa Claus sticky wall using contact paper and cotton balls! It is a fabulous idea for a fun toddler or preschooler play date activity during the holidays!
Looking for more fun things to do with your kids this Holiday Season? Check out this great ideas:
How to Set Up Santa Sticky Wall
Grab your red foam sheets and scissors. Cut a large triangle hat for Santa. Glue a cotton ball to the top. Also cut a large red circle for Santa’s nose.
Cut a large square from your roll of contact paper. On the back draw a large round circle for Santa’s face. Tape your contact paper up on the wall with the sticky side facing out.
Grab your cotton balls, large googley eyes, Santa hat and nose.
Next, I invited my twin toddlers to build a Santa Claus! First, they put up his hat, nose and eyes, then they started to create his beard using cotton balls.
To create the beard, your toddler can either dab the cotton balls on the contact paper or they can stick the entire cotton ball on the wall.
My twins absolutely loved this!
This is something that would make a great play date activity during the Holiday Season for toddlers or preschoolers.
TIP…When they were done, I removed the bigger cotton balls and saved them for the next activity!
