Sticker books for preschoolers and elementary schoolers build fine-motor skills and visual discrimination –but they’re mostly just tons of fun.
If you’re looking for sticker activity books to keep your kids engaged, here are my top picks.
I Can Do That! Stickers by Gakken
ages 3 – 5
Originally from Japan, Gakken books are now available in the U.S. This is an adorable early learning reusable sticker book that helps kids with fine motor skills through math and problem-solving activities. They’ll see the stickers to match numbers to groups of things or matching shapes or going through a maze. I love the brightly colored illustrations in this, don’t you?!
PBS Sticker Smart Art Colors and Shapes
Kids use the reusable, colorful geometric shapes to complete the pictures of a picnic, robots, flowers, backyards, and more. Placing the stickers on the pages builds fine motor coordination and shape recognition. Completion is like finishing a puzzle, just in a book. If you like this, you’ll also love the Sticker Smart Art Around the World book.
First Numbers, Colors, and Shapes Sticker Book by Roger Priddy
ages 2 – 5
If you like hands-on, fine motor practice while learning preschool concepts, this is a great early learning option.
Highlights Hidden Pictures Sticker Book
ages 3 – 6
Younger learners can the stickers to find the hidden objects. So fun! My kids always preferred the sticker hidden picture books to the color books.
Cool Animals Sticker Activity Book by National Geographic Kids
ages 4 – 8
WOW! National Geographic never disappoints. This book is filled with 1,000 stickers of animals, puzzles, games, spelling, patterns, drawing ideas, and much more. Highly recommended.

Disney Frozen 2 Sticker Book by DK
ages 5 – 8
Fans of the movies will enjoy recreating the storyline with stickers.
Paint By Stickers Unicorns & Magic
My fine motor skills and big fingers clearly are not meant for this book. But there are many kids like these paint by sticker books. (Mine aren’t interested.) Basically, you’re given a sheet of numbered geometric stickers that you match to the numbered shapes on another page. Shapes like a mermaid, unicorn, castle, and fairy.
Paint by Sticker Kids Beautiful Bugs
I’ve already done one of these myself, they’re so fun! (But I wish my fingers were kid sized so it would be a bit easier.) However, these are meant for kids so I suppose I better share… The sticker bugs are like a paint by number only with stickers. Look on the sticker page for the correct number. Then match it to the spot on the bug illustration. The book has perforated pages making tearing out the sticker page and the art easy. Would your kids like this sticker book?
