Sticky Easel – Match Sticks & Pompoms

BY ON Apr 29, 2014
Play opportunity using a sticky easel, match stick and pompoms. Lots of great ideas!


Using an easel covered with sticky contact is a wonderful creative tool and canvas that will entice kids to play creatively and imaginatively.

Setting up an Invitation to play opportunity with match sticks and pompoms for your child to play freely using the sticky easel board allows them the freedom to discover, explore, create with no structure or end result.


What you will need?

Sticky Easel play prompt


You will need contact paper, sticky tape, easel, pompoms and match sticks.

To apply the sticky contact to the easel, I first measured the size of the contact to fit the easel and cut it to length.  I then peeled away the contact backing paper and held the smooth side onto the board with the sticky side facing out.  I then used sticky tape to fasten the contact paper to the easel.
