Sticker Matching Game

Sticker Matching GameThis morning I woke up to this post from Kiwi Crate in my inbox, which turned out to be a perfect afternoon activity for Miss G.  The moment I nonchalantly mentioned a ‘sticker matching game’, she was ready to go.

IMG 3733Luckily, this little activity takes very little prep work.  Miss G helped me gather some paper, some dot stickers, a Sharpie, and some scissors.

IMG 3734To get started, I folded a green sheet of construction paper in half, and cut out a tree shape freehand.

IMG 3736Next, I used the Sharpie to draw 15 unique shapes onto the dot stickers (the original post uses letters instead of shapes, but I thought this would be a better starting point for Miss G).

IMG 3738Next, I drew matching shapes on the tree.  And that was it.  The game was ready.

IMG 3739Then I let Miss G go.  All I said was “Do you want to try this sticker matching game?” and she started peeling stickers off of the backing.  I wasn’t sure what she’d do, but she automatically placed the polka dotted circle sticker on top of the polka dotted circle drawn on the paper.  Smart little cookie! ☺

IMG 3744Let me tell you, Miss G adores matching games.  Mix in stickers, which she also adores, and this game couldn’t be more perfect for her.

IMG 3755Done!

IMG 3749Of course, the second she finished her tree she tilted her head to the side and said, “Grae Grae does anover sticker matching game, Mama?”  And really, how can you say no to that?  This time, we went with something a little different…  I cut out a quick gingerbread person and used the stickers as body parts and decorations.

IMG 3757She loved this one too and pleaded for another.

IMG 3750This time I decided to try the letter idea.

IMG 3752I wasn’t sure if it would be too much for her, but off she went and carefully started making matches.

IMG 3758It definitely took her a little more time, but she happily worked on it on her own as I tidied the house.

IMG 3760“Mama, Mama!  All done!!!”  

This was such a fun and simple activity that we’ll definitely be doing it again soon (VERY soon – as in tomorrow – if it’s up to Miss G).

Keep up with all the Mama.Papa.Bubba. fun, like us on Facebook here and find us on Instagram here.
