I LOVE stickers! For so many reasons! They are fun, they are great motivators, they teach numbers, letters, counting, etc… the list goes on and on! But, the one downside to stickers is that they can go fast! Especially if you have a sticker lover in the house! Well, problem solved! This recipe for homemade stickers is SO simple and quick! And, I bet you have everything you need right there in your house!

What you need:

Directions:

  1. Measure out the glue (2 parts) and the vinegar (1 part) in a small container.
  2. Mix well
  3. Cut out desired pictures
  4. Lightly brush glue/vinegar mixture on the back of the desired picture.
  5. Let try (about 15 minutes)
  6. Lick ’em and Stick ’em

Easy right!? Yes! And so fun! Now, I know what you must be thinking. Vinegar?! SICK! That must taste awful! Good news my friends….they don’t have any taste to them at all! And they have some serious stick to them!

Give your kids a magazine, some scissors and a paint brush with the glue mixture and let them go crazy! (If they are too young to use scissors cut the pictures out first for them.)

    I absolutely LOVE this activity! It is so great for fine motor development and it also helps kids with their letters. We also have several kids with sensory issues so the glue and other textures are perfect for them. I’ll have to share this with our parents.

    This is so cool! With a two year old in the house we go through stickers like it’s going out of style. Our zoo membership gets us a magazine every month so we can make animal stickers. Thanks for the recipe!
