One of the easiest ways to entertain my grand kids is with a sheet of stickers. It's true.....isn't it?!! Kids love stickers.
They get a strip of stickers when we go to Trader Joes. The dentist gives out stickers. Teachers give out stickers. They are little bits of joy!
Somewhere, sometime, for some reason, I bought a box full of round stickers. Whatever they cost me has paid back 10-fold when I need more time without distraction on a project!
What amazes me is that the kids have moved from placing the stickers on paper to arranging them on the furniture, on the carpet, on beds, walls and each other. And no matter how well I think I have cleaned them up, they keep reappearing in my hair, on my clothes, in my car, on my elbow, etc. As I sat down to write this post I noticed one on my chair. I'm not surprised!
I came across the most amazing photos and video of an art installation at the Queensland Museum of Modern Art from January of last year. It's a brilliant example of interactive art and I love that they let the kids get involved!! This is what happens when you give thousands of stickers to thousands of kids and give them permission to stick them all over the room!!
