In my own humble opinion, playing with stickers has kind of become my thing, and I have a ton of ideas to share.

I wasn’t kidding when I said I have a few sticker activities up my sleeve!
I love sticker activities.
From the Target Dollar Spot to my favorite pack on Amazon, stickers make us happy. Yet after a few DIY cards, the half-full sticker sheet gets tossed aside and shoved back into the bottom drawer. What’s next?
First, let’s get some stickers your way.

Here are the best sticker activities
This dot to dot activity is excellent for fine motor play.
I will sound like a broken record, but this dot to dot matching fine motor activity helps with pencil grip! We want to do easy ideas like this before we ask our child to write the letters.
Simply put, this activity is a risk-free way to practice lines, curves, and pencil grip.
Mystery Shapes adds excitement to your morning!
Making math fun helps preschoolers take more risks in their learning. This is so important for early learners! Mystery Shapes is a great fine motor activity in toddlers, and preschoolers practice pencil grip through play. Grab the stickers. It’s a fun one!
Shape people with a monster madness mix.
Yep. My toddler is 100% here for this sticker activity. These shape people are hard to resist and also have a little counting activity twist.
Put this toddler math activity on repeat. It’s a good one!
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.
Who’s up for a sticker maze? It’s a fine motor win every time!
What if I told you this sticker maze also helps fine motor development and assists with pencil grip?
It is a risk-free activity to help strengthen fingers for future writing. It is basically prewriting magic! The pressure of forming letters and numbers correctly is off, and the practice of holding the hand steadily is on.
Have you tried Sticker Match to help pencil grip?
You must! This learning through play sticker activity is simple, easy to set up, and is packed with a fine motor punch. Sticker Match is also a risk-free way to improve pencil grip!
Grab your dot stickers because this counting activity for preschoolers is a blast.
My three-year-old strengthened his counting skills and improved number sense through play, exactly how we want children to learn.
We are on a matching game-high over here. My seven and five-year-old are taking the lead, and my three-year-old wants desperately to be a part of the group. Sticker pairs are a fun gateway for your toddler into the more complex memory matching games!
Even better, you know that I enjoyed that hot cup of morning tea as he found sticker pairs. – In true Breakfast Invitations fashion.
It’s true! This Elmer the Elephant sticker activity helps toddlers strengthen small hand muscles as I get to empty the dishwasher.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Now, the dishwasher is not as exciting as a trip to Target. – But it needs to be done without someone asking me for a snack at the same time. – I know you know.
Sticker sorting by size cleans up those stickers lurking in the art car’s bottom drawer and underneath the couch—double win.
So let’s scoop up the big and little stickers. This preschool math activity is one that children will play for years to come!
I wish I could tell you that this magnetic tile sticker puzzle came to me on a whim.
But it didn’t. In fact, this indoor game came from a scroll on the gram. When I saw this simple way to play with magnetic tiles on @unknitandtiedtogether it screamed Sunday Night Setup.
Dot the lights is where it’s at, and this holiday dot stickers activity does not disappoint.
We already know that dot stickers make crazy fun Breakfast Invitations. Supplies are simple, and the learning engages children in play first thing in the morning.
Which sticker activity will you try first?
