Spring Garden Sticky Easel

Create a Spring Garden Sticky Easel - Spring Activities

We have been talking about seasons a lot in our house, particularly as the weather begins to warm up and the sun rising earlier each morning. Miss 4 and I have been playing in the garden and noticing all the changes and this motivated us to create a Spring Garden Sticky Easel.

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 Contact Paper on Easel Board

You will need contact paper, sticky tape, easel, pompoms and Popsicle sticks. You could add just about any craft material to this basket such as foam shapes and cut up paper.  Another addition you could add to the basket are leaves and flowers from the garden.


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 placed sticky tape to fasten the contact paper to the easel.
