Sticky Easel

Now that I’ve got some time to spend with the little Nancy by myself, I’m trying to get more toddler friendly activities going for her.  So, watch for more coming here!  Today, I’ve got something that is easy and good to toddlers and older kids as well.  My inspiration came form this sticky wall art post, but since wall space is somewhat limited at my house, I decided that the easel would work better for us.  I just used some painter’s tape to put some contact paper, sticky side out on to our easel, then pulled all of the pattern pieces that came with this fabulous puzzle out and let the kids start sticking them.

It was a big hit with Nancy, who lined up all of the orange squares as she sorted them out of the pile with cousin Chloe’s help:
And it was an even bigger hit when Clara got home from school and needed some quiet time to herself:

    Such a great idea. Developing a healthy imagination early is the most important thing you can do with children. Later in life, creative solutions to solving problems comes from a strong imagination. Great job! – Kaye
