I remember I used to collect stickers of my favorite cartoon characters 😍 when I was my son’s age.
Stickers are fascinating and engaging supplies that are loved by kids of all ages. My daughter loves ❤ ️ to play with stickers of her favorite characters like Shin Chan and Doraemon. My son loves collecting stickers of various aircraft ✈️ and 🚀 rockets.
I love teaching my little ones the English Alphabet 🔠 , numbers 🔢, addition, multiplication, and similar topics using suitable stickers.
Moreover, we enjoy creating amazing craft pieces 🤩 using colorful and shiny stickers.
Fascinating Sticker Activities for Kids
Kids love playing with stickers, so it’s quite easy to grab their attention 🧠 toward a topic or activity involving stickers. Here are a few sticker activities I love to engage in with my little ones.
This is an extremely popular activity by means of which I teach my little ones about numbers 🔢 and mathematical operations quite easily.
We take stickers of various numbers and symbols of mathematical operations and use them to learn addition ➕️, multiplication ✖️, division ➗️ , and subtraction.
My daughter loves to learn ✍️ about numbers by sticking the stickers on her notebook or chart papers.
My son is very focused on solving numerical problems and putting the stickers of the numbers on the sheets of paper to form the answers.
You can also teach your little mathematicians about odd, even, or prime numbers 🔢 using stickers.
Alphabets and Stickers
This is another engaging way of utilizing stickers to teach your little ones about alphabets 🔠, spellings, and sentences.
I ask my kids to form words and sentences using stickers of the English 🔠 alphabet.
Moreover, you can create a ‘Match the Column’ activity for your kids using these stickers.
I put the stickers of various animals like bees 🐝 or cows 🐄 under one column and ask my kids to spell their names in English in the adjacent column using stickers of alphabets.
Sometimes, I jumble up the names on the second column and ask my kids to use a pencil ✏️ to draw a line and match the animal’s stickers to its correct name.
Painting rainbows is a beloved activity of kids, but making a rainbow 🌈 using colorful stickers is even more interesting and engaging.
I draw the outline of a rainbow using a black marker pen and ask my little ones to put stickers in each row of the outline corresponding to the colors 🌈 of a rainbow.
My daughter loves to use colorful tiny heart-shaped stickers for this purpose, while my son loves to use airplane-shaped ✈️ colorful stickers for the same.
Why limit the imagination to rainbows?
I use half of a circular paper plate to make the body of an octopus 🐙 and attach strings to one end to form its tentacles. My kids stick colorful dot-shaped 🔴 ⚪️ 🔵 or heart ❤️ 🧡 💙 💚 shaped stickers on the tentacles to decorate the octopus.
You can also prepare the cutout of a snail’s 🐌 spiral shell or a caterpillar 🐛 for your kids to decorate using various colorful stickers.
Sticker Tracing Activities
Teaching my little ones to draw ✍️ is one of my favorite activities, and using translucent stickers for this purpose is another interesting 💡 idea.
I put translucent stickers carrying black colored bold outlines of animals 🐒 or plants 🌳 on the completed colorful diagram of the same.
My kids observe the colors on the original diagram through the translucent sticker and paint 🎨 the outlines on the sticker resembling the colors of the original diagram.
I also teach my little ones how to trace their names or specific spellings 🔠 using translucent stickers for this tracing activity.
My kids love 🤩 sorting activities because they refine their thinking 🤔 abilities.
I prepare columns on a piece of art paper and label each column with the name of a color.
My little ones are supposed to recognize the stickers of each color 🌈 and stick them correctly in the corresponding columns.
You can repeat this activity with numbers 🔢 too, by asking your kids to sort prime numbers (such as 2, 3, 5, … and so on), even numbers, and odd numbers in specific columns.
Moreover, I ask my kids to sort the stickers of herbivores 🐄 and carnivores 🐯 in separate corresponding columns, too.
In addition to this activity, you can also use stickers of different sizes or shapes and ask your little ones to sort them by grouping the same shapes or sizes in separate sheets.
Festive Sticker Decorations
Glitter stickers are a must-have craft supply for making festive greeting cards 💌 or garlands.
My little ones love to use shiny ✨️ and glitter stickers resembling stars 🌟, moon 🌙, or planets 🪐to decorate balloons, paper garlands, or cards.
Moreover, we also decorate notebooks and paintings using shiny stickers.
I draw circular or triangular 🔺️ shapes on strips of paper and ask my little one to choose and put a sticker fitting perfectly into that shape, letting them polish their fine motor skills.
You can also teach your little ones how to punch holes in the center of these circular stickers using a punching machine.
Please make sure your little campers don’t injure themselves while using scissors or punching machines.
My little ones love giving their peers funky bracelets 🪢; thus, we often end up making pretty bracelets using various kinds of stickers.
I cut out ✂️ strips of paper and mark a pattern on them using dotted lines. My little ones stick round-shaped 🟡 or different kinds of stickers along these dotted lines, practicing a fine motor activity.
I punch holes in the ends of every sticker bracelet and tie it around the wrists of my little ones.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Dot Sticker Activity
All parents and children must be well aware of the famous book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Let me tell you that Chicka Chicka Boom Boom dot sticker activities are just as famous 🤩 as the wonderful book itself.
I just print 🖨 the diagram of a tree 🌳 and put dot-shaped white stickers carrying alphabets all over it in a fashion corresponding to the contents of the book.
My little one’s job is to put colorful stickers of the same alphabet 🔠 over the white-shaped stickers. This activity helps them to recall and recognize small letters and capital letters in a simple manner.
Unicorn Sticker Activity
Does your little one love coloring 🎨 activities just like my son and daughter?
If the answer is yes, then this sticker coloring activity is a perfect one for them.
I take the printout of a colorful unicorn 🦄, divide the whole diagram into grids, and write ✍️ the names of the colors to be filled in each section. My little painters read the name of a particular color 🎨 and pick out stickers of the same color to cover the respective grids with it.
This sticker activity will help them to recall the names of different colors ✅️ quite easily. Moreover, you can repeat the same activity with the diagram of a dinosaur 🦕 too.
Sticker Maze Activity
Maze activities have always been a favorite 🤩, and adding the concept of stickers to it is a big hit amongst kids. I draw a grid on a piece of white paper (you can also draw circles 🔵 in a grid-like fashion) and write alphabets in each grid.
I make sure a certain alphabet completes the maze by repeating in a continuous (not necessarily straight) line from the topmost left-hand side end of the grid to the bottom-most right-hand side of it.
My little one’s job is to recognize this particular alphabet 🔠 and follow its path throughout the maze by sticking colorful stickers of the same alphabet along the path on the grids.
Planets, Countries, and Stars
Stickers of planets 🌍, flags, and celestial bodies come extremely handy when I am teaching my little ones.
I write ✍️ the names of various planets, such as ‘SATURN’ 🪐, and ask my little one to put the sticker corresponding to the name over it. Similarly, I teach my little one the names of various stars 🌟 and celestial bodies.
Memorizing the flags 🇮🇳 of various countries is a tough job, but it becomes easy with the help of stickers of all the flags. My little one writes the name of a country 🌍 on a piece of paper and puts the sticker of that particular country’s flag over it.
Analyze the Measurements
Teaching my little one about analyzing sizes and different measurements visually 👀 is always on my list ✅️ of priorities.
I collect stickers of circles 🔵 or different shapes and ask my little one to put these stickers on a piece of paper in increasing or decreasing order of sizes 📐 on a sheet of paper.
You can also utilize three-dimensional stickers to teach your little one about the concepts of dimensions.
Stickers are lovely 🤩 craft supplies that can be used for a number of activities for little ones.
Starting from colorful 🌈 sticker activities to shiny ✨️ ones, don’t forget to tell me 😇 in the comments below which one is your kid’s favorite.
