'sticking' as an activity
« on: December 01, 2013, 13:47:55 pm »
From what age was your little one able to manage a stick of glue and do 'sticking' as an activity? Audrey LOVES sticking stickers on to things but it gets quite pricey, the rate she goes through them...

Do you have to help her with the glue?

To get things properly stuck, yes.  But she will have a good go of daubing it all over the paper and then sprinkling a few things approximately in the right places :)

F was definitely having a go by 2, if I cut out shapes or pictures for her and gave hera BIG piece of paper she could get most of them on. More recently she had lots of fun tearing a piece of tinfoil into tiny pieces and sticking them onto coloured card, which doesn't require a lot of accuracy with either distribution of glue or placement, but was actually really pretty.

E loves stickers too and they are pricey. I haven't done this with her at home but at nursery they do "free sticking" where the nursery helper puts glue all over a piece of paper and she has then stuck things (cotton wool, leaves, other) on the paper wherever she wants

Have you tried making your own stickers Anna? I posted a link on it many years ago with the recipe - probably sometime in winter 2009 when DS was that age. I can't search but I think mods probably still can? Basically it is like making a jello/gelatin but really thick, and then painting it on paper (activity in itself), letting it dry,  and then cutting it into shapes and you have licking stickers

What about glitter for general sticking? It doesn't require a lot of finesse.

I sense a decluttering opportunity here! Do any of your los mind sticker pages that have already been started? We have a tendency to start books and DS never finishes them off - which drives me up the wall. But if I could post the stickers to someone I might feel better about it!

Anyone interested?? If so, please pm me your address.

Or get those coloured glue and you dab on many places and she can stick whatever cut outs on the colour spots?

Ey, all three kids (DH, Stan, Aud) had a great time sticking tiny bits of tin foil this afternoon. Such concentration!

He he - yep L has inexpensive tastes lol!

I don't really buy her stixkers that much but cut up old magazines, cards, wrapping paper, catalogues, junk mail... and L makes collages with that.  Also have a load of coloured tissue paper I've saved from gifts.

Can't remember when she started with a pritt stick but some time between 1st and 2nd birthdays.

It's only recently she's been interested in making pictures/patterns /designs with the sticking.  Before then she was quite happy just to stick things all over the place.  Most often she sticks onto paper but sometimes onto an old tissue box or loo roll or something like that.
