I was very into stickers as a kid. I didn’t use my stickers in crafts though, they were too precious to me, instead I collected and stored them in a large photo album and occasionally traded with my friends. Here are some crafts, toys and activities you can create while preserving these precious stickers.
Here’s a recycling craft perfect for any age. Grown ups can help transform the milk bottles and kids can use adhesives and stickers to give these upcycled elephants character.

I’m not sure why but I was obsessed with window clings as a kid. This activity allows your kids to personalize and create their own window stickers for play, and decorating.

Story stones are one of my new fascinations. There are so many great ways for you and your kids to create your own story stones and your own stories. Story Stones are a perfect way to preserve favorite stickers and integrate them into play and narrative.
