Like most toddlers, two-year-old Anna is very curious and she likes to explore her world. I have a nice collection of simple activities that help her explore the world that in ways that don’t create chaos! Making a sticker scene is a quick and easy toddler AND big kid activity that all of my kids enjoy. It’s also a great way for kids to work on fine motor and storytelling skills!
Since we had vehicle-themed stickers, we drew some simple roads on a sheet of paper and set Anna free. Anna has just gotten into cars (although she calls them choo-choos), and especially school buses (which she does correctly call buses – do you see the bus she put on her paper?), so these stickers were perfect for her. Johnny kept her company, helping her with some of the trickier stickers and turning this into a nice sibling bonding activity.
Anna wound up adding some drawn details to her page, and Johnny made up a story to go with her picture. It was a great sibling bonding activity that they both enjoyed!
Stickers are one of my favorite craft supplies to have on hand. They are great for encouraging kids to write physical letters to friends and families, they encourage storytelling, and they are great ice breakers for shy friends who come visit. They are also very easy to use and not very messy, although I have found that foam stickers can be really hard to get off of furniture and floors! Felt stickers are actually the least likely to cause problems, but they are a little pricey for everyday use.
