If there is one form of children's art/entertainment that I am a huge fan of, it's stickers! Why? Why Kelsey do you like stickers so much? Well let me explain. I spend my days walking around my house finding new graffiti murals done with crayons or markers, or when I get incredibly desperate I will pull out the dreaded play-doh (that I will regret doing when I am brushing the stuff out of the carpets). But stickers! Stickers are easy, in the event that my little artists stray from the designated crafting area and sticker the walls, goo gone will surely fix it.
So let's talk about Pipsticks, a monthly sticker service for your children, or you if you are into that sort of thing. It is a well curated package of stickers, and craft ideas to go along with it. And just look at that cute packaging, I mean come on. There are so many different sticker sheets that come in one package, all cute and so fun. Ace is obsessed with stickers, I think it comes from school since he will get a sticker on a good in-class or homework assignment so he associates it with happy thoughts.
We went with a little Fall theme, and I picked up a pack of foam pumpkins at the store. The children choose their stickers and got to it. The great thing is, the people over at Pipsticks know what they are doing and send so many stickers that there is no fighting to be had by the starving artists. The boys spent two hours at this table with stickers, pumpkins, and paper. Avalon lasted thirty minutes but I'll take it.
Here is one of the finished products! Please try not to be jealous of our incredible pinterest/martha stewart-esque creations. The boys also made enough pumpkins that we now have them taped to every window. But I like it. Ace is already asking when his next sticker box will come in the mail!
Okay, okay, I know I said there is something in it for you. And there is! The amazing people at Pipsticks are giving away a first month FREE to Pardon My French readers!! Just head over to their website and at checkout enter the code PARDON. This will work on individual or family size subscriptions. They also ship internationally so no one is left out here. If you happen to not be into the sticker game, you can also use the code to gift a package to someone else. Pretty awesome if you ask me.
