Sticky Board Toddler Activity

I am getting to a point where I need to find new fun activities to keep my busy baby happy and occupied!

My mom came across this great idea on Make Do and Friend and shared it with me.  I thought it was perfect and had to make one to try out myself!


All you need to do it take some clear contact paper and tape it to any surface sticky side up.  I put some on a little table, but I found that Sam liked it better when it was vertical.  Looking around my stuff, I came across the cover for my sewing machine that I never ever use.  I taped the contact paper to it and set it somewhere that Sam could push on it and it wouldn’t knock it over. 


Then I went searching for items that might work and let him have a go at it!Sticky-Board-Activity

Even Luke started to experiment with it to see which of his toys he could get to stay stuck on the board.Sticky-Board-For-Kids-of-All-Ages

So if you are looking for a cheap and easy boredom buster for you little ones, this might be something you’d like to try.  It’s a little finicky getting the sticky paper onto your choice of surface, but still only takes five minutes.  You can buy a huge roll of clear contact paper for about $5.  Sticky-Hands-on-the-Sticky-Board

If you have any great simple, cheap ideas like this I’d love to hear them! Sam is my busy busy baby and I’m constantly trying to keep him interested in new things!


  1. Thank you! My twins are one year old in 2 weeks, and they are busy busy boys! I am going to go buy some of this today and try it out!! :)

  2. Just came across your blog on Pinterest, it is adorable! We love activities like this and would love if you would link up with us on Share it Saturday!

  3. This is such a lovely idea that we are going to feature your post on our blog tomorrow. I know my kids would enjoy something like this. How funny that you used your sewing machine as a support. My machine does not get used as much as it used to, that is for sure! We will be sharing our features with our FB fans as well, so stop by and visit us if you like!
