Note: Contact Paper (or Sticky-back paper) comes in a variety of styles and colours. The activities here tend to use clear contact paper. You can buy contact paper anywhere that sells school supplies, office supplies or art/craft supplies. Depending on the time of year, you can often find it even in the supermarket.
