You recently discovered stickers and there’s no turning back. We started a sticker and stamp board as an ongoing project. I thought it might be a great way for you to get creative and see your work progress.
The board is just about your height and keeps you at eye level while you play. Your favorite to stick are any kind of ocean animal, specifically whales and sharks. You also like dump trucks, police cars and fire trucks. Recently I brought home some ice cream stickers, and you pretended to lick each one before sticking them. It was the “sweetest” thing! 🍦 Last week it was shamrocks and this week, due to Easter Time, its been all about eggs, bunnies and chicks.
What I love the most about this craft is watching you create a masterpiece. Some stickers land right on top of the other, some get ripped off entirely and almost always the ink gets smeared. Like you and I, it is nowhere near perfect, but beautiful nonetheless!
With So Much Love,
Toddler Craft: Sticker & Stamp Board
For this project, I purchased a large foam poster board on clearance at Michael’s, somewhere around $2. You can find stickers of all kinds at your local craft store and you might consider purchasing sticker books, they will keep you and your toddler busy for awhile. You’ll want to grab sheets of your child’s favorite things, for Dutch it was ocean animals and vehicles. And don’t forget seasons and upcoming holidays. It’s Easter time right now, so we have been sticking eggs and flowers all week. 🌷 I even included an Easter themed sticker sheet in his Easter basket.
And why not pick up sheets of numbers and letters? What better way to learn, than while having fun! We also experimented with ink stamping. I literally stumbled upon 4 small nautical stamps for $1 and an ink pad for $.50 (also at Michael’s). Dutch and I practiced pressing into the pad and carefully stamping the board.
In all, this craft cost us less than $10, for hours of ongoing fun!
I’d love to hear your ideas! What kinds of sticker projects have you created with your child?
