A Christmas bow sticky wall is the perfect activity for toddlers. Lily (20 months) was entertained for quite a while with this one. Aiden (age 6) also had fun joining in and playing with her.
Christmas Bow Sticky Wall
What You’ll Need:
- Christmas bows (you can use new ones or keep the bows after you open presents and recycle them for this activity)
- Contact paper
- Painter’s tape (or masking tape safe for the wall)
Attach the contact paper to the wall sticky side out. Tape down the edges with painter’s tape. This will keep your toddler from pulling the contact paper off of the wall.
Place a few bows on the sticky wall and show it to your toddler. Encourage her to add bows, take them away, and move them around. Placing bows up high will encourage her to reach for them. Careful not to place them too high. Big brother placed that green one just out of Lily’s reach.
Talk about the colors of the bows. Can you place all of the blue bows together?
Where is a red bow?
For older toddlers or preschoolers, you can also work on patterns. Alternate colors or create a Christmas tree with the bows!
This is a great activity for siblings, too. Just make sure the contact paper is big enough for everyone to have space.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing another activity with Christmas bows. Come back and check it out!
