Charley Harper’s Sticky Birds: An Animal Sticker Kit

This sticker kit holds lots of simple shapes you can stick together to make pictures of 12 different birds like those drawn by Charley Harper. At first you might want to use the stickers to copy the way the birds look in the booklet. After you get the hang of it, you might try making those 12 birds without looking at their pictures. Or you can make up your own sticker birds!

You can have hours of creative fun stickering alone, and even more fun stickering with friends. See who can put together a bird the fastest. Or use the stickers to make up your own birds, and then ask your friends to guess what they are. Happy stickering!

Sticker kit includes:

- 6 sheets of more than 180, durable, reusable, vinyl stickers
- 1 double-sided 7 x 10 in. play-area board for arranging the stickers (they also stick to glass!)
- 1 booklet illustrating 12 finished birds, with information about each one

Box size: 7½ x 10½ x ⅞ in.

Artist: Charley Harper

During his lifetime, artist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) painted lots and lots of birds. He was raised on a farm in West Virginia, and as a kid he explored the woods and fields near his home, sketching the critters he saw. When he grew up, he developed a unique artistic style. Instead of recording every small detail of his wild subjects, he simplified each animal to its most basic elements. Rather than drawing every feather on a bird, for example, he just drew bold, colorful shapes for the wings, body, beak, and tail. And he always highlighted each animal’s most familiar features—the blur of a hummingbird’s beating wings, for example, or the bright red crest of a cardinal.
