Stick Art
Total Time 1 hour Ages preschooler

Ages: 12 months and up

To make a winsome window decoration, take up a collection of natural beauties -- leaves, grass, flower petals, and ferns work well -- and help your child arrange them on the sticky side of a piece of clear Con-Tact paper. (You may want to tape down the Con-Tact paper to keep it from moving.) When he's done, place a second piece sticky-side down on top of the objects and press to seal it. Trim the edges (we cut ours into a circle), punch a hole in the top, and hang it in a window with a short length of ribbon.

What you'll need
