Have you ever let your child make homemade stickers?
They are actually super easy to make, and the only thing you need are some old magazines, jello, and water.
First, have your child cut out pictures from magazines. In this case, we looked for Valentine's themed pictures like hearts and flowers.
Place 2 tbsp. water in a microwave safe dish. Cook to boiling point (in my microwave this was about 45 seconds). Immediately stir in 1 tbsp. jello. Since our theme was Valentine's, we used red jello. Allow to cool to lukewarm.
Let your preschooler paint the backs of the pictures with the jello mixture.
Allow to dry completely.
Then your child can lick the painted surface to make sticky stickers.
Kids love the jello flavor. Pierce said, "It tastes GOOOOOD!"
After licking, place stickers wherever you like.
We had a very special purpose for ours.
But you'll have to come back tomorrow to find out what!
