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 literally made my job possible through the pandemic, helped me get dinner ready most nights, cerating mesmerizing silence during church with young kids, and have saved my sanity more than I should admit! More specifically, paint by sticker books have been a mindful activity that has kept little hand and minds busy for hours on end.
I have a huge post coming rounding up several different types of sticker books, but I realized our most used and loved ones 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! I made a mental note that they’d be fun to do as an adult, and perfect for older children.
What are they?
Kids or adults can follow a number code to create a full-color finished picture without any mess. Think of a paint-by-numbers of your childhood with a modern update using a particular sticker in place of paint or markers. Each sticker is used in a set appropriate spaces the user matches mup by number or letter to create gorgeous works of art, or other completed images and graphics. You’ll find a page of stickers that look like geometric polygon shapes. They have easy removal and tons of bright colors. Some even come with glitter, and we love the glow-in-the-dark stickers that come with some paint-by-sticker books.
Fast forward six years after first learning about the major update to the paint-by-number artwork, and finding there are so many more options for sticker mosaic books! In fact, the Original creator now has a Paint by Sticker Kids line and is now 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 (or yourself!).

We hope these help you find the pleasure of peeling off a sticker and having a mindfully good time creating a dazzling image while enjoying this compelling activity! Colorers of all ages truly love the framing and creating with this fun book concept! And did I mention zero cleanup time?
