USBORNE STICKER ACTIVITIES BOOK REVIEW:
We have been using this Usborne Sticker Activities book for over a month now and I should tell you that this book is fabulous. It gives the child an opportunity to learn to create and replicate.
ABOUT THE “STICKER ACTIVITIES BOOK”:
The book comes along with hundreds of colourful stickers, to create or make something. It has various things like honey bee, spaceship, boat, fish, house, snake and more. The child has to use one or more stickers to make the design given. The child is also free to create their own design or things. And the front page has simple instructions on how to use the book. The stickers on back has a small cut to help the child peel easily.
Each page is of different simple themes, so the child can look into it and do accordingly. Like for example: there are boats on a page – “boats sailing on the sea”, the child has to recreate the boats, for which the child gets to:
- Think and decide which stickers are to be used. For a boat as per our example, the child has different possibilities to recreate the boat design on the page, the child will need to use square, semi-circle and triangles.
- Sometimes the child might have to cut the sticker a little bit to get the desired shape.
- Once the sticker is stuck down, the child can use felt-tip pen to add in more details. The one you see in the image, the honey bees all the black lines and eyes of the bee everything is done using felt-tip pen.
What I love about this book?
- I like how different things can be made using stickers. Simplicity of using only stickers to create. And the level of creativity is superb.
- The various themes that are covered gives you an opportunity to discuss more with your child.
- Great for fine motor development (hand-eye coordination), critical thinking and problem solving.
