Concoctions for Play: Homemade Stickers


Homemade Stickers
1 envelope (1/4 oz) unflavored gelatin
4 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
1/2 tsp flavoring extract

Add gelatin to the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Stir in corn syrup and flavoring. Paint sticker gum on backs of pictures cut from magazines or pieces of wrapping paper.After the backs of papers are coated allow to dry completely.Once paper is dry use scissors to cut out the shapes or you can use punches to cut out fun shapes.Once you have all of the shapes cut out, just lick and stick. If you have left over sticker gum it will harden into a gel. To re-use, heat until it becomes liquid again.

  2. We did this once with flavored jello, and the kids really enjoyed it! I'm thinking we might do this again with my Sunday School class.

  3. It's been a while since we've done this - probably time to pull it back out for the younger kids :)
