Tissue Paper + Contact Paper

April 5th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Came up with this idea for a fun learning project: I cut out tissue paper circles in primary colors and sandwiched them in some contact paper.  I put double-sided tape on one side of the circles and stuck them to the window.  Lloyd has been having SO MUCH fun sticking them on top of each other and seeing the new colors the layers make.   After just 5 minutes of play he had ‘Red and Yellow make Orange, Blue and Yellow make Green, etc….’ all memorized.   And when he puts all three of the circles on top of each other we yell out “ICK! BROWN!” and then laugh.

Henry also LOVES these circles.  He just sticks them on the windows and then un-sticks them and rearranges them.  Keeps both of the boys occupied for a good stretch of time!

Lloyd also made another beautiful Easter Egg – this is a very easy, toddler-friendly craft.  Tape some contact paper onto a window, sticky side facing out into the room.  The toddler artist places tissue paper shreds onto the sticky contact paper.  Place another layer of contact paper on top – sticky sides together, and cut out your shape!
