This is a super easy project that you can do with kids to give them a special place for their stickers and help them learn their colors at the same time! It's fun to comb through stickers and play a matching game to place all of the green stickers on the green page, yellow stickers on the yellow page and so on.
Most families find themselves up to their elbows in stickers and sometimes they get stuck in less than desirable places...here is a fun solution that is actually two activities in one...the making of the book and the matching of colors.
To make the Rainbow Sticker Book all you need is:
- Colorful paper ( I used basic construction paper)
- Ribbon (about a yard or so)
- A ruler (optional)
Here's what you do:
Arrange the paper in the color sequence you prefer and stack paper. Begin by trimming a 1 inch strip off of the second to last sheet, 2 inches off of the third to last sheet, 3 inches off of the fourth to last sheet and so on, until you have this:
As you can see, I'm a bit of a rebel and like to eye things up and just cut...that's OK! Also, you could have fun with decorative edged scissors for each page too.
Next, Snip two slits through all sheets to bind it...you could punch a hole in it, but I found it to be a bit too thick. Finally, bind your sheets together with the ribbon and tie a lovely bow. Voila! It's ready to fill!
|Finally, a use for that barnyard animals ribbon!|
Be sure to add names of colors to each page (as shown below) to help little ones begin to associate the name of the color with the actual color.
We got fancy and added stickers to the front to make a cover too...be sure to fill the front and back of each page with all of your stickers! So much fun!
Here's an example of one of the sheets...the "blue" page with blue stickers. It becomes sort of a game to dig through stickers looking for a particular color.
