Kids love puzzles, and they love stickers. Here is an activity using stickers to create puzzles that can be put together in five minutes or less.
Materials needed are a index cards and a set of stickers where there are several duplicates or sheets. I used these.
Notice they are all stars, but the fill, background and outline colors of the stars vary. This was intentional. It makes the puzzles more difficult and more appropriate for preschool age. However, if you have a younger aged toddler, you can use alternate stickers with less similarities.
Choose a group of four stickers that are the exact same, and one that is slightly different. Arrange them in a line on the index card. Laminate for added durability.
To play, show a card to your child and ask him to identify which star does not belong. Which one is different?
