When Nanny came up for Daniels Birthday she had brought some stickers for the boys. Normally we tend to either use stickers for a specific project or I have a stash that I forget to give out as rewards! So when faced with a whole sheet each, they didn't really want to put them on their t-shirts. Joseph (4.5) wanted to stick them on the walls & Daniel (3) wanted to stick them on toys! So amidst the chaos of greeting & settling in my mum, I had a rummage in my 'to keep to make something with one day' box & found these old CDs.
We've used CDs for crafts before & the boys have been wary as I'm always telling them to be careful with CDs & DVDs, so I stressed the point that these were old ones that Daddy didn't need any more. The boys were happy to use the shiny CDs as a base for their creativity & I breathed a sigh of relief that my walls were safe! Peeling stickers from a sheet is a great fine motor activity, Joseph finds this quite easy but depending on the type of sticker Daniel can struggle. Once finished I added some ribbon so that they became decorations. They are now hung on the boys wardrobe doors & are a useful place to keep stickers that are coming off of t-shirts at the end of the day, which saves me having to sneak them in the bin!
