Sticker Story

When I found several pages of LEGO® City brand stickers on a shopping trip to Wal-Mart, I didn't hesitate to buy them. LEGOs are one of my son’s favorite toys and he loves the LEGO City easy-reader books, too. Since we already had the book “Calling All Cars,” I figured this was an opportunity to use the book and the cops-and-robbers themed stickers.

We started this activity by reading the book. It’s longer than what my son is used to, so we took turns. I read one line; he read the next. When the book was finished, I gave my son the stickers, a pencil, and a blank piece of paper with large rules (check out for free downloadable papers).

I told him to write a story using the stickers. At the top of the paper, I wrote “One day in LEGO City …”. He loved this activity and worked hard to sound out words as he wrote his short story. He filled the whole page. No nagging required. [YAHOO!]

This is a simple activity that could be recreated easily. There are SO many character-themed (Disney Fairies, Cars, Transformers, etc.) stickers for sale and books available at your local library.


  1. What a fun idea!! I will have to steal that, for sure! Stopping by from the Friday Blog Hop. I love the idea of your blog... being sneaky about education, so funny!

  2. I think they had something like that when my kids were little I think they felt like vinyl.
