Prepping to Peel

Prep the activity by sticking various sizes of tape strips onto an “easy to peel off” surface, like a tile floor.

Getting set up for our peel and stick art activity!

Then grab a piece of colored construction paper.

Let your child decide whether they’d like to create a more abstract piece of artwork with a blank piece of paper, fill-in a provided shape, or have a few shapes to get started on a scene.

Customize your peel and stick art activity: go totally freestyle, fill in a design, or create a fun scene!

Ready to Peel and Stick

Invite your child over to peel off the strips of tape. As they peel off the tape have them stick it onto the provided piece of paper.

Peel and stick art is a great fine motor skills workout!

Your child may also enjoy peeling and tearing the tape before sticking it to their paper. Tearing is a great for fine motor development too!

Peel-tear-stick…simple!

Three Ways to Stick Together

An abstract piece of artwork would just be random tape designs.

The pre-drawn shape would provide something for them to fill-in, like a heart or star.

Stick your tape to the paper to create fun, mess-free art!

The scene would definitely be for an older child. Either you could provide a few items like a tree and sun for them to create around or they can create the entire scene on their own.

Continue to stick tape down as needed, for your child to have enough to peel off and stick until their artwork is complete.

We love getting crafty with tape!

Make Your Art Super Extra

Once your child has peeled and stuck as much tape as they would like, you can choose to have them add some additional artistic items.

Provide some markers or crayons to color over the tape. Or use stickers for extra pizzazz.

Once complete, this peel and stick tape art will be a treasure to display.  Don’t be surprised if your child wants to peel and stick over and over again.

You could even make your art super fancy from the get-go. Use washi tape to peel and stick for colorful designs.
