A roundup of the best mosaic sticker book options including Paint by Sticker Books and paint by number sticker books.
Wanna know my parenting secret weapon? Sticker books have literally made my job possible through the pandemic, dinner ready most nights, church with young kids doable, and my sanity saved more than I should admit! More specifically, paint by sticker books.
I have a huge post coming rounding up several different types of sticker books, but I realized our most used and loved deserved its own post! Mosaic sticker books are a staple in our house, and I’m not kidding when I say we’ve spent a small fortune trying every type.
Paint by Sticker Books
I first learned about Paint by Sticker Books at Alt Summit in 2016 when I went with a newborn baby. Workman Publishing was a sponsor, and they gave sample Paint by Sticker Adult books just as they launched. I was impressed! And made a mental note that they’d be fun to do as an adult, and perfect for older children.
Fast forward five years later and the Paint by Sticker Kids line is launching new books every year! There are also several other companies that create amazing mosaic sticker books. As we’ve learned to use and love these, we’ve truly tried them all!
Here’s a roundup of the best mosaic sticker books for kids, sorted by skill level so you can find the perfect sticker book for your kids (of yourself!).
If you have a kid still working on numbers or letters, this is a great option! The shapes are varied enough that it's easy to place by shape. But the Brain Games Sticker by Number books are all a great transitional book!
Paint By Sticker Kids
The original Paint by Sticker books by Workman Publishing took the world by storm with this concept. Many others followed with their own versions.
But the Paint by Sticker Kids books are all truly top-notch with so many great options!
I bought a stack of these on a great Amazon sale, and instantly worried maybe they'd feel too girly for my dinosaur-loving son. Boy was I wrong! There are dragons, wizards, castles, and of course, unicorn and princess pages to complete.
There's glitter in several Paint by Sticker Magic which makes them extra fun! Boys and girls will appreciate this fun book!
If you're looking for a Paint by Sticker Adult book, they're a great option for more than just adults! Most kids really get the matching skills down with the kid books and are ready to move up. These make great books for advanced kids, teens, and adults who love a great anxiety-reducing activity!
