12 This project was inspired by the Faith That Sticks sticker pack God Made Bugs from Tyndale. The stickers feature nine different insects (a few that are featured in this pack) and were a fun addition to our insect study. Additional suggestions for using the stickers include: Using two sheets to create a matching game. Simply cut 18 3x3 squares of cardstock and put a sticker on each piece. Then have fun matching them up. Use the stickers as a guide and have your child sketch their own image of the insect. These stickers have some great colors that are eye-catching! Write a story using the stickers. Have your child write their own story picking 2 or 3 of the stickers or have them dictate one to you. Make some fun spring cards using the beautiful insects and let your child create a scene to put the insects into! For older children, put each of the 9 stickers onto a 3x3 cardstock square and let them practice alphabetizing the insects. Make popsicle stick puppets with each of the insect stickers. Create a simple windsock and use the stickers to decorate. The stickers are light enough that they won t add extra weight to the windsock. Make a fun bracelet with a few of the stickers and wear it on a nature walk. See what insects you find as you walk along!
