Do your kids like stickers? They do? And all their friends like stickers, too? That sounds about right. Stickers seem to be one of the few items that have stood the test of time with children of all ages. My 3-year-old recently became a sticker enthusiast. When I found out about Pipsticks, a sticker subscription for kids, I knew I needed to try them out.

Pipsticks was kind enough to send my son a Kids Pack plus additional stickers including an I Love Paris pack. I decided to hide them from my son when the arrived because we were heading to Paris. Of course, I had grand ideas of surprising him on the train to Paris with the sticker pack. I thought he would spend the train ride crafting presents for family.

However, I realized on the train that he hadn’t seen Paris yet. This put a wrinkle in my plan. I wanted him to be extra excited about the Paris stickers. So, I decided to hold off until after our trip. This was best for us because he really just wanted to watch Moana on repeat for the whole train ride.

Paris was amazing and my preschooler created a lot of good memories there. When we got back home, I surprised him with the Pipsticks package. He was so excited that he got mail! He ripped it open and wanted to check out all the stickers. When he came to the Paris stickers, he shouted out “the Eiffel Tower!”

He immediately told me he wanted to make something for Grandma. Since Pipsticks provided pre-stamped postcards, this was an easy activity. He looked through the stickers and placed them on the postcard. When he was finished, we wrote a short message and sent it on its way.

I really like how this sticker subscription had everything my son needed to create a present. He loves making presents. It came in a handy envelope so we can keep them together. They barely took up any room in my suitcase. I also can stash it easily in my diaper bag. It’s a great activity for my son to work on while waiting at restaurants.

Now that he has created the postcard, our next project will be decorating matte boards to frame travel photos. These will make great presents for grandparents. And I’m guessing he may also want to decorate the photos themselves!

      It’s a great subscription box and it doesn’t take up much space!

  3. I use to love stickers when I was younger it was so much fun to collect. This seems like a great rad project for kids to do when school is out or to keep them entertained. Thanks for sharing

  4. This is such a cute & fun idea! My kids are literally obsessed with stickers…especially my 2 year old! I’ll just give her a sticker sheet and it easily provides her with a full 15 minutes of entertainment!

      I know, right? They appeal to so many kids!

  5. This looks so cool and looks like your son loves it. Subscription boxes are such a great idea for kids, my daughter too gets excited when she receives mail. 🙂

      My son seriously keeps a lookout for the mail truck, UPS truck and the elusive FedEx truck every day!

      I like how they are new and different stickers each month.

  6. This is genius. The currancy of toddlers is definitely stickers! They love them! But more than just collecting them, I love the idea of creating post cards or greeting cards with them. Or, as you mentioned, using them to reinforce the sights of a recent trip. I will have to check this out!

      Yes! My friend’s son decorates cards with stickers and my friend uses them as thank you cards throughout the year. Brilliant!

  7. This looks like so much fun! The kids I babysit would absolutely love doing this! I’ll have to look into this. I’m always on the lookout for fun and different things to do with them to create an exciting summer experience!

  8. What? Sticker subscription?! This is awesome! My kids love stickers…need to check it out. ?

      Isn’t it a fun idea? My son loved the “project” aspect of it, too!
