Rainbow Sticky Wall Letter Formation

We love to brighten up our days with colorful rainbow learning activities! We created a sticky wall full of letters to practice letter formation for homeschool preschool.

For our sticky wall literacy invitation I wrote letters on the backwards on the non-sticky side of contact paper. I taped the paper to the refrigerator then peeled off the protecting lining so it was sticky side out. You could set this activity up in a window, on an easel, or wall. Check out our previous contact paper rainbow sun catcher!

Our preschooler and toddler practiced both color matching and identification and rainbow color order by sticking our transparent rainbow chips to the contact paper. As they worked we named both letters and colors.

This is an activity that can be revisited for playful learning again and again! We will have this set up for quite some time since both kids worked together and then returned independently to alter and adapt their project later, too!

  6. Those rainbow colored chips are so pretty. We have not played with a sticky wall yet. I like that they can come back to it and changed up things.

  7. This looks like such fun! AND we haven't used any sticky paper in a long while. I think its time to dig it out

  8. We haven't tried a sticky wall before. I love to discover new uses for products we have on hand!
