If there is one thing that can keep the wee girl occupied for hours, it’s stickers, or stigs as they have become known.
Give her a sheet of stickers (or several) and a sheet of paper and she will become completely focused on the task at hand, and will cover that sheet of paper.
When her love affair with stickers first began, she would become frustrated; they wouldn’t come off the sheet, or they would tear, or they would stick to her fingers. She has spent many an afternoon trying to stick stickers upside down, becoming more and more annoyed as they stubbornly stuck to her rather than the paper.
Once she had developed the right technique to ‘peel and stick’ though, there was no stopping her!
However, at the moment she will only use round, or preferably egg shaped, stickers?! Don’t you just love these idiosyncrasies; she will not be palmed off with stars or squares or dinosaurs. Not even a Disney character will do. Nope, just eggs.
Sadly, these are harder to find when it’s not Easter!
Do your kids have random obsessions like this?
