    Instead of using regular masking tape, look for the easy remove kind for use
    on delicate surfaces (like wallpaper). Even if the kids really stick it down
    it peels up easily without tearing the paper.

    Something kids enjoy doing ---

    *** Clear Contact Stencils

    clear contact paper (any contact paper works, not just clear)
    white construction paper, or any heavy paper
    watercolor paints

    Cut pieces of contact paper into any shapes.
    Peel backing away.
    Press gently onto white construction paper or other heavy paper.
    Watercolor over the clear contact.
    Dry Briefly.
    Peel off the clear contact.
     *The trick is not to press the contact down too firmly, and to peel it
    off before it has a chance to stick too much.
         * You can do this with masking tape too.
         * You can also crayon over the papers, and then peel off the contact
         * Sponge painting over the contact paper, then peeling looks cool
