My kids absolutely love sticker play sets. They keep them busy for hours and so it seems like I am always buying them for our road trips. My kids are always sad when the stickers are all used up and they have to move on to something else. After heading out to buy more sticker playsets for our latest road trip, I decided to spend a little bit of time making them reusable than wasting more and more money on them. The kids loved them just as much and we can use them on our next trip now too! It takes a little bit of time to make them reusable but it is so worth it!
You will need:
- Sticker Playsets. (I found all of these at the dollar store)
- A laminator and laminating Sheets, I use this one and love it!
- a binder pouch to keep the letters in
- magnet tape
- cookie sheet to play on (I bought mine at the dollar store)
I found these play sets in the craft aisle of the dollar store. They were perfect for this but you can also find the play sets at book stores and such. My daughters love the dress up doll sticker play sets so those are next on my list to make reusable.
You can use an old cookie sheet, but I found that the cookie sheets at the dollar store are the right size for a regular sheet of paper. I bought a dollar cookie sheet and then spray painted it turquoise, while the paint was still wet, I covered it in pink glitter. This cookie sheet was a project from more than four years ago and it still looks great.
Using stickers that I got from the dollar store, I labeled each binder pouch for the individual play sets and then I put a big piece of packing tape over the labels so they wouldn’t peel off.
