I tried to keep characters, TV and movies away from my son for as long as I could. That lasted about a year, now he recognizes most characters even ones he’s never seen anywhere but the store like Spider man . Seeing all the merchandise in the store is tempting for kids and the last thing I need in my house is another plastic toy that offers few learning opportunities, so instead I made this. I spent one dollar on these Toy Story stickers and we have been having fun playing and learning since. It’s a great compromise.
- Gather your materials. You will need some character stickers ( 2 sheets of matching), some card stock, scissors or a paper cutter, and some family members to play.
- Start by cutting your card stock into squares.
- Pop the stickers on
- Make sure the stickers on on the same colors, I made it a little tricky for my 3 year old by having multiple characters , but used different colored card stock to help act as a hint.
- Gather some grandparents to play with your child !
This was one of the games we took with us on our road trip to the beach, it’s small, packs easily and fits into our Travel Craft Box !
