Stickers are some of L’s favorite things!  They’re also a great work for promoting fine motor skills — it’s kind of tough for toddlers to peel stickers by themselves.  The repetition of peeling a sticker and putting it on the paper, then peeling another sticker and putting it on the paper, leads to increased focus and concentration skills.


To prepare this work, I picked up some cheap sticker packages from the dollar bins at Target.  It doesn’t really matter what’s on the stickers — the point is the process of peeling them off and sticking them onto the paper.  I have also used free stickers that come in the mail, or the ones that are attached to some calendars and dog heartguard containers.  I cut the sticker sheets into smaller sections of about 10-15 stickers, and put one sheet into a box on the tray.  I added some construction paper, and that was it!  L absolutely loves this work.  She will do it many times in a row.  When she has emptied one sticker sheet, she can put the old one in the garbage and get a new sheet and piece of construction paper from the paper organizer on her art table.

  1. If only my toddler would stick to sticking these on paper. She thinks my whole house is an art canvas for her to explore

  2. Great idea..I recently used stickers at a kids workshop by putting stickers myself on their hands.but now I feel i should have done it the way you have spelled it out ..Perhaps next time.☺
