Have extra stickers? Try a conversation starter sticker activity!
Try this fun activity to use up all those half-used sticker sheets shoved into your junk drawer. Better yet is this conversation starter sticker activity will get your early learners chatting!
One of the main reasons I love stickers is that each one prompts my boys to tell a funny story.
The boys are quick to tell me what’s on the sticker or how they plan to use it. Stickers offer the opportunity for conversation, and this Breakfast Invitation is sure to get them talking.
It’s quick. It’s fun. And it offers an opportunity for an interesting chat at breakfast that may surprise you as it did me!

What‘s not to love about Lightning McQueen, Thomas the Train, and a giant octopus? Come to find out, Cars isn’t a favorite movie, Thomas the Train is no longer a hit, and the octopus wasn’t going to be his new spirit animal. Who knew?!
What began as a fast and easy sticker activity for fine motor transformed into the funniest little conversation! His reasoning for objects circled and the objects crossed out was my favorite part of this Breakfast Invitations.

Why is conversation important?
First, having conversations with your child allows them to become stronger thinkers, better writers, and active readers. By the end of Kindergarten, children will be asked to have important conversations about the books read and to have meaningful conversations with their peers on Kindergarten topics.
By Kindergarten, children may be asked with prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text. Children may also be asked, with prompting and support, to describe the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear.
Children may also be asked to continue a conversation through multiple exchanges and speak audibly and clearly express thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
This Breakfast Invitation is a great way to get these conversations started!

For this Breakfast Invitation, I grabbed my white paper roll and taped it down with painter’s tape to our Breakfast Table.
Next, I went on a quick hunt for supplies and gathered the half-used sticker sheets found in our Art Cart’s bottom drawer. There was a chance my five-year-old may or may not recognize the sight word, like, so I wanted to add that in the title.
I prompted my boys by reading them the title and asked, “What do you like? Circle what you like, and cross out what you don’t”.
This was when things got pretty funny!
My five-year-old would stop thinking about each sticker and then continue to tell me his reasoning. Note to self; pumpkins for Halloween are a win; volcanos are too hot (even when our house is covered in lava?!)
