What they say: Sticker, Shape, Create is the first title in a stylish new art activity series for creative children, combining stickers and drawing. Using just a few basic sticker shapes and following simple step-by-step instructions, kids can build striking sticker pictures onto a variety of background scenes. Each spread features a different theme, from chirping birds and incredible insects, to hot air balloons, fun cityscapes, fireworks and lots more.
After the basic sticker shapes have been created, children can use pens or coloUred pencils to add fun and imaginative details to the stickers, bringing the pictures to life. Each pull-out sticker sheet contains the same shapes in 10 different colours, so children can mix and match to create their own unique pictures and combinations.
What we say: “The Sticker, Shape, Create art activity book consists of 29 scenes with 1500 stickers. From animals to hat galleries, the possibilities for creativity are endless. Each double page spread consists of some ideas of ways to place shapes together to create images relative to the scene and a page for you to create your own take. As the child only has a range of sticker shapes to create images, as opposed to sticker images, it gets them thinking and perhaps increases the age range this activity book would be suitable for. Once in place you can add details to the creations or draw on the stickers with pens and pencils.
My 4 year old loved it and created quite some abstract art! It has a different feel to a conventional ‘sticker book’ and gives your child free reign to create what they like.
At £8.99 I think this is a fair price and would make an ideal present for both boys and girls or just to have in your bag to keep the children entertained in the car or in a restaurant!”
Sticker, Shape, Create is available from many good book stores and online from Amazon.
