The Sticker Game: Teaching Toddlers Colors, Shapes, and Letters

Sticker Game | Teaching toddlers shapes, colors, and letters

My son loves to play this game – he doesn’t even realize we’re actually having “school time.”  This is an easy way to teach toddlers just about anything: letters, colors, shapes, or any other concept you’re working on.  Older kids could play this game with sight words as well.

All you need is stuff you already have at home: paper, stickers, and markers.
Teaching Toddlers Letters Shapes and Colors with Stickers

I use construction paper and draw different shapes, colors, and letters.  Repetition is key here.  If your child is having a difficult time grasping a triangle, for example, you may want to draw many triangles.  I hand my son one sticker at a time, giving him a job of something to search for – “find mama the color purple.”  When he finds it, he gets to cover it with a sticker.  Easy as that!

We play this game a lot at home.  I need to start packing stickers in my purse so we can play it while out to eat or waiting at the doctor’s office.

  1. This is a really great idea. I am always trying to find little games (learning games) to do with my daughter. Although I think she may not get the concept just yet. How old is your son?

    1. Hi Michelle! My son is 2 1/2. How old is your daughter? You’d be surprised how quickly they catch on! You could always start with making X’s on a paper, to get her used to the idea of covering something with a sticker and then move on to more difficult concepts. 🙂
