Recently, my mom gave me a stack of sticker labels which she found around her house. I wasn’t sure what to do with so many of them until I decided we could try this…
I passed Hannah a sheet of sticker labels and some markers, and told her to colour the labels however she please. Once the little artist is happy with her colours, I gave her a sheet of plain paper to stick the labels on. She’s into building skyscrapers and cities these days, so I asked if she would like to create colourful buildings with these labels.
Without hesitation, Hannah was busy peeling the stickers off and sticking them one on top of the other. She was building her houses. After all the pasting, we drew in the neighbourhood. She drew many stick people in red.
I was rather curious of her colour choice, and asked if there was any special reason for using only red. She replied, “It’s Chinese New Year. People are going visiting.” I’m amazed with the wonderful stories children can come up with!
Moms, what would you do with a stack of sticker labels? I’d love to get some ideas from you. 🙂
