I gathered some collage materials and taped down a piece of contact paper. We started by feeling the sticky contact paper and then I showed her how to stick something onto the paper. I told her that the pom-pom was sparkly and green. For each item on the tray I told her the color and another adjective.
What I found was she really liked the cotton balls. She liked the way they some of the cotton ball was left behind on the contact paper and the soft ripping sound it made when she pulled them up. She also liked trying to draw on the contact paper.
|The pom-poms, yarn, foil were left untouched. The feathers were used to tickle faces.|
