Hi!  My name is Mimi and I'm a sticker-aholic!  I love stickers....still.  I remember my brightest school days being the days when my papers came back with stickers on them.  I was easily bribed for a home and at school.  I'd practice piano for a sticker. I'd do my chores for a sticker. I bet you get the idea.  Well, my kids this year love stickers!  You can't imagine the delight.  :) They, too, are easily bribed for a sticker.  So, how can we display the stickers they collect for their good work?  A big fat piece of clear packing tape!  Yep...tape.  It peels off nicely, not damaging the desk.  They feel like they are graffiting (is that even a word) their desk, all the while showing off their "good work" stickers.  It's simple.  See below.  ***sorry for the use of the word "sticker" times 10 (it has no synonyms)

Sticker on.  (oops...11)


  1. What a creative way to display. I, too, am a sticker-aholic. I have a problem..... :)

  2. Cute idea! I have always been so annoyed by that one student who stuck a sticker on their desk and it NEVER fully came off so the packing tape is a great solution!

  4. Stickers on desks drive me nutty!'s really the scraping off of stickers that drives me nuts.
    They do love putting stickers on their desk!
    My students owe you a big thank you...they just don't know it yet. :-)

  5. I just came across your blog and totally love it. I know that clipart can always be used in the classroom. I came across this site which offers unlimited access to the clipart. Plus new items are added almost daily. Take a peek at it Look for Teachers and Church Teachers.Missy Mae

  6. Just like you, I am a sticker-aholic also.. Since I was a kid I was easily bribed with stickers, cause I really find it cute. By the ways, I am very grateful with your share, you just give me a brilliant idea which is still new for me on how to display stickers without damaging your desk.
