Sticky Window Flower Garden

Sticky Window Flower Garden for Toddlers no time for flash cards

Like many of my activities this sticky window was spur of the moment. I was trying to get ready for our family trip to Texas and my 2 year old had already watched more TV than I care to admit. We needed an easy and fun activity . This was perfect. I had a bouquet of flowers that I was going to have to throw away before we left anyway so it was even better that we could use it for this. If you don’t have a bouquet of wilting flowers on hand you can use leaves, grass clippings, pine cones, etc… Go on a nature walk and see what will stick!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some contact paper, painter’s tape, scissors and flowers or other bits of nature.  I used markers to make some stems and the start of the mural but it was totally NOT needed. I wish I had not done this. The flowers and sticky window is enough.  I would have put up another sheet of contact paper but it’s expensive and my daughter was waiting. sticky window flower garden for toddlers 2
  2. Tape the contact paper on the window. The way I do this is to peel a little bit back and tape the top. sticky windowThe sticky side is facing YOU.  The carefully peel the backing off. Tape all the other sides down with the painter’s tape. sticky wall 2
  3. Prep the flowers in a bowl or container for your child.  My daughter loved just playing with the flowers , pulling them apart and investigating. I loved watching her. sticky wall flower activity for toddlers

    This looks so fun! My husband has forbidden me from doing this activity with our 2yo tho because he thinks it’ll encourage our son to treat the doors as a play place and draw on / damage them in some way. Have u ever had this (the disrespectful treatment of a play area, not being forbidden from using certain parts of the house for play)?

      Kids will test boundaries and my daughter has colored on one wall in the playroom but that’s it. I see our house as our family house but there are areas where we don’t paint ( like the living room) like anything with a 2 year old repetition and positive redirection seems to be key. I think kids know the boundaries within an activity but every child is different and every family is different. You need to do what fits for your family. If you need help finding activities that fit better let me know I would be happy to help !

    I did this with my 4 year old yesterday and everyone said how pretty it is! It was great walking around collecting the flowers and leaves like a little nature trail ! Thank you for the fab idea 🙂

    Hi! Love this! and also saw the pom pom idea too – will try both with 14.5 mo old Gianna. Think I might cut out a bunch of hearts and put them in a box and let her put them up as she wants too… BTW, the stems are cute. I usually ask the kids if they would like me to add stems or if they want to do their own thing. They will tell me yes or no on their own. I always tell them “It’s your masterpiece – you can do what you want with it!”
