May bank holiday activities — with stickers
Custom stickers are a joy for kids and adults alike, and here are three of our favourite ways to embrace stickers this bank holiday.
1. Create a sticker story
Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of storytelling by creating your very own sticker story. A great way to occupy the little ones, stickers can help you craft captivating tales, whether it's a whimsical fairy story, an adventurous quest, or a heart-warming slice of life.
Use a variety of stickers to show characters, settings, and plot twists. Why not get some personalised stickers made to represent the whole family?
You can use a notebook to create a longer story or a large piece of card to create a story poster board. Experiment with different themes, moods, and genres, and watch as your sticker story unfolds before your eyes.
2. Sticker prizes for bank holiday games
Make this bank holiday an unforgettable one by incorporating sticker prizes into your festivities and games. Whatever your plans are, this is a great way to bring people together and provide everyone with a fun prize. Why not choose metallic stickers for an extra flourish?
