The magic of Paint by Sticker Kids continues, combining the fun of coloring and stickers with the creativity of paint by number. The series just keeps growing, with another much-loved nature-themed topic: Bugs
Paint by Sticker Kids: Beautiful Bugs includes everything kids need to create 10 full-color illustrations of their favorite creepy-crawlies: a firefly, a praying mantis, a ladybug, butterflies, ants, a painted grasshopper, a dragonfly, beetles, a bumblebee, and a weevil. Simply find the numbered sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next--and watch a dazzling image come to life with color and spirit in the modern "low-poly" style (using geometric polygon shapes). The card-stock pages are perforated so artwork can be easily removed for framing or the fridge.
Creating sticker art is as fun and meditative as coloring, and it's a refreshing shake-up from the usual crayons and markers. Plus, the peel-and-place system allows kids to practice recognizing and learning numbers in an interactive, stress-free way. And it's a great rainy day or travel activity (no cleanup ) that delivers hands-on fun for less than $10.
