WFMW

I have a TON of these little round stickers that I bought originally for a garage sale, then I ended up buying more for school. Needless to say, they were sitting around taking up precious junk drawer space. I got a great idea after seeing a coloring page Claire brought home from daycare. We had so much fun with these stickers today. I can see using them for letters and numbers (write a number or letter, have the kids put stickers around them to "trace"), bugs, snowman, counting...the possibilities are endless.

Today the kids made caterpillars and it kept them quiet for nearly 15 minutes. People. Do you understand the magnitude of that sentence? 15 minutes of quiet. No arguing, fighting, screaming, whining, crying, fussing...just quiet.

500 count package of paper...$5.99
500 round stickers...$1.99
2 markers...$2.00
15 minutes of quiet...PRICELESS

Cole suddenly turned Asian in this last pic...but look at that name written all by himself. So big!

For more great tips, check out WFMW at Rocks in my Dryer.

Oh that is such a cute idea & totally worth the 15 mins of quiet time.
They are so cute & Cole did such a great job writing his own name.
You are pure Genius woman!!!

Oh how I'd pay to have a brain that works like that! LOL VERY CLEVER!!! And the kids did such a cute job!

Now I say you frame them! I love when I see the kids "art work" framed! It's too late for me tho...my kids are well past that cute stage:( LOL

And really, they got rid of art in our school, so getting them to do anything artsy at home....eh, not happening, I have them old boys, lol

How adorable ! 15 whole minutes?? That is a record. I see a little John Deere,Allis influence in Cole's caterpillar. Hope everyone is feeling better today.

LOVE IT!!! How cute are those caterpillars? And the silence? What did you even do with all that? Glad to see some pics again. Love Cole's little pattern there, but I have to say I'm a little surprised it's not just green and yellow.

That is such a cute idea. I love it.

That IS a great idea. We had tons of those where I used to work. I loved your comment about Cole being Asian. If I had been drinking coffee, it would have soaked my computer. Oh yes it would have.

That IS a great idea. My babysitter recently introduced my daughter to the wonder of Bingo dobbers. Same concept..lots of little circles..lots of flowers and caterpillars!

Your kids are so cute and look very ornery.

I tried your chicken pot pie recipe last night. I thought my husband was going to lick the casserole dish. I swear he growled at me when I tried to wash his plate! :)

Those photos are awesome! Cracks me up too! I wish my little guy would spend that much time on a project. not quite yet, though.

Great pictures they did too.

What a great idea!

Wy had a fiesta with all the Mr Yuck stickers that came in the male last week.

They. Are. Everywhere.

I wondered why it was so quiet...

Tiffany said...

Great idea. And, of course, I came for the pictures.

Blarney said...

LOVE when that happens!

thotlady said...

What a great idea. Simply simple.

KimmyJ said...

Smart and resourcesful - two things I love in a girl. :)

Karen said...

Cool idea !! I'm going to suggest it to the kindy teachers at school..

Good job on the name, Cole. Well done! :-)

Rhea said...

Very cute pictures the kids made! I agree, those 15 minutes of silence are PRICELESS!
