Sticky wall pros:
1. Fun for Baby
2. Cheap for me
3. Easy to put together
4. Looks cool to Baby and me
5. Encourages standing up and cruising
6. Clean up’s a breeze
Sticky wall cons: None
– Contact paper
– Scotch tape
– Stuff to stick on the contact paper like baby socks, wash clothes, straws, whatever is light enough to stay stuck and isn’t a choking hazard. For those of you who don’t know what contact paper is, you may know it as drawer liner or shelf liner. You can get it at Home Depot or Walmart or any home goods store.
– Wall or floor
1. Cut a piece of contact paper to cover a small part of your wall or the floor or activity table or bottom of a shallow plastic bin.
2. Place bits of tape in the middle area of the contact paper on the non-sticky side so that the paper doesn’t lift off the floor or wall when the baby pulls off the “ornaments.”
3. Stick up the contact paper.
4. Peel off the backing to expose the tacky surface.
5. Stick on socks and straws and pompoms and wash cloths and whatnot.
6. Watch Baby go bananas.
