Please visit our Crafts for Kids Cubby for more project ideas using clear contact paper.

- Double sided tape
- Arrange photos on the surface you desire, securing with tape and cover with clear contact paper to make a smooth and washable surface.
The following two ideas were contributed by StorkNet member Cheryl (DAmom). Thank you for these great ideas, Cheryl!
Baby wipes container: Cover with pictures of babies clipped from parenting magazines. Everyone knows babies love to look at other babies and why not have these pictures in view during a change!
Snack table: Take a old coffee table or garage sale find and cut construction paper in a curvy way on one side to make a border. Then take pictures of family and place them on the table in a collage. Cover with clear contact paper. Cheryl's son uses the table pictured to play at and eat at and it wipes up clean!
Special thanks to StorkNet member Karen (LogansMom) for this great idea!
Magazine holder: Cut a cereal box to make it work as a magazine holder. (See photo.) Using double-sided tape, stick your collage items to the box. When you are done, cover the magazine holder with clear contact paper. This will protect the pictures and make it sturdier.
Here are some more ideas!
Toy or craft containers: To organize all those little toys or crafts, take a picture or use a part of the box it came in and secure it to the front of a stackable storage bin. This way, kids (and you!) can easily see find what they are looking for. No guarantees that they will put it back in the right place though!
Pencil can: Cover a coffee can, Pringles can or other can to use as a personalized pencil or crayon container.
