Sometimes I get carried away with ideas for fancy, elaborate, art projects. Sometimes I curse Play School for filling my children’s heads with ideas on how to create ‘a farm with real animals and grass’ out of two toilet rolls and a box of tissues. And sometimes I remember that the kids and I don’t need to do super, fancy, difficult, messy art projects all the time. Sometimes I remember to keep it simple….
What you’ll need for this simple collage activity:
- Just a a few pieces of coloured paper cut into simple little squares.
A glue stick or other glue.
Paper or cardboard – cut the sides of empty cereal boxes they are great for collage.
The smaller hands enjoyed the process of simply choosing paper and sticking it to the page.
When the older hands cam home from school they enjoyed creating more elaborate designs.
It was easy to set up, easy to clean up and fun for everyone.
