Five Minute Crafts for Kids-DIY Stickers
When it comes to stickers, kids can never have enough. They love collecting them, maybe preserving them in a special sticker book and of course—they love sticking them on things. Most stickers run on the expensive side. Wouldn’t it be great if you and your child could create your own stickers with just a few supplies you most likely already have at home? Well, now you can with our five minute crafts DIY sticker tutorial!
This is seriously a super quick post which goes to show just how easy this kids craft really is. Ready, set, let’s go!
Supplies & Materials Needed:
Magazines, comic books, gift wrap, coloring books, etc. (something you don’t mind cutting)
Unflavored gelatin (you can use flavored gelatin, but the unflavored is clear)
How to Create
- Start with cutting out a bunch of fun and colorful images from old magazines, comic books, gift wrap, coloring books, you can even print them!
- Next, dissolve two teaspoons of unflavored gelatin in five teaspoons of boiling water (adults only)
- Using your paintbrush, completely brush on a thin layer of the gelatin mixture to the back of each image you cut out.
- Once you have the images covered with the gelatin mixture, let them completely dry. When the backs are no longer tacky to the touch, your stickers are ready to lick and stick!
See, I told you this was a quickie! I hope you and your child have a blast creating your own stickers. Now, what are you waiting for?! Get to sticking!
