Stickers are great for kids aren't they? And for parents. They're cheap to buy and they make kids' eyes light up. They're easy to pop in your bag and get out at those moments where a little distraction or entertainment is needed. There's an infinite variety and everyone can find something they like.
But what on earth does anyone actually do with them?
A friend of mine gets tired of having stickers attached to various parts of her body by her small daughter. My kids generally put them on the backs of their hands but that doesn't last long. Stickers are so fun and creative, there's got to be more you can do with them than that. Perhaps older children incorporate them in to card-making or something...
We had the idea recently of using stickers as part of our drawing; sticking them on paper and using them to inspire some colouring in. I got in to it way more than my kids (you can see my masterpiece below) but it still entertained them a for a brief while.
What do you do with your stickers? Well, what do your kids do? Have you got any good ideas for us? How do we unlock their full potential?!
