Create a fun and easy snowman sticky wall for your toddler or preschooler! It’s a great fine motor winter holiday activity!
Sticky walls are my favourite activity to set up for my twin toddlers. Check out these fun and creative sticky wall ideas for toddlers:
How to Set Up Snowman Sticky Wall
Grab your orange and black foam sheets paper and scissors. Cut out a carrot nose, a top hat and a smile mouth for your snowman.
Unroll your contact paper and draw the outline of a snowman using a black sharpie on the back of the sticky wall (not the side with the paper backing). Tape your contact paper snowman up on a wall or window with the sticky side facing out.
Set out your cotton balls, buttons, snowflakes and google eyes, nose, hat and mouth in a way your little one can easily access it. I used a plastic appetizer tray.
Invite your little one build a snowman. Add the eyes, hat, nose and mouth first before adding the cotton ball snow. Once the cotton balls go on the sticky wall it will be harder to stick anything else up. Next add the buttons.
Finally its time to add the cotton ball snow! Let your little one use the cotton balls to dap snow on the snowman.
My twins absolutely loved this part. They added snow on the snowman and around him! I also let them add silver snowflakes around the snowman as well.
