Contact Paper and Little PiecesPosted: August 17, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: Artsy Fartsy, Community, Cut and Paste, Experimentation, Recycling | Leave a comment »
There is a plastics corporation in the next town over that has a “community store,” where educators can shop for free rejected materials. Their main supply is contact paper, so of course, I trek my way there and snatch a stack. There are usually local resources like this available to educators and parents…you should take a look around to see if there is a resource like this in your community.
I tape the contact paper down onto the little kid table and fill small bowls with snips of foam paper and crayon wrappers left over from other projects.
The kids keep cutting up the foam and paper, sticking all the pieces onto the sticky surface.
