Want to know my number one secret to having a million (and one) activities if things get a little stale without having to buy more stuff? A giant hole punch.
You can use them to create almost anything. Most often, I create matching/memory games with stickers but we also make numbers and letters. Sometimes we hide them around the house and play "treasure hunt" and sometimes, we simply work together to make confetti and then either glue it to paper or throw it around the room. The sky is the limit! As she gets older we can do spelling games and math games as well. All with just a few sheets of paper and a hole punch! If the construction paper seems too flimsy for you, just use card stock! Easy Peasy!
Let us know if you try it and be sure to tag us instagram so we can see what kind of DIY games you come up with!

We also love these one inch shape punches
Our favorite stickers come on rolls. I buy a roll or two every season and use them various projects espeically matching/memory games like this! Here's some of our faves!
Hint: If the sticker packs don't come with enough variety for the game you want to create try using more than one color of construction paper and creating different pieces that way! We used red AND pink for valentines Day. Sometimes we played with only one set and sometimes we mixed them together.
