One of our favorite things to do on a chilly morning or a rainy afternoon is to have a family art session. We clear off the kitchen table and bring out all sorts of art supplies for everyone to get creative. One thing my girls have really started enjoying is making collages. It’s great for little kids who love visual things and are just learning about the names of things. With toddlers, the outcome of an art project isn’t always the prettiest, but the process is so much fun! (And isn’t that what it’s ALL about?!) This project is SO easy and you can make it your own by adding in whatever you like!
What you will need:
Optional: glitter, stickers, ribbon, pom poms, etc.
1) Look through magazines with your child. Let them pick out the pictures they want to use. (My kids like pictures of animals and food the best!)
2) Cut out the images. (You can let your little one do this if they are seasoned scissor-users!)
3) Using a glue stick, let your little one glue the cut-outs onto a sheet of paper. (We have also glued them onto popsicle sticks, making them into puppets instead!)
4) Then, decorate with paint, glitter, stickers, – whatever odds and ends you have on hand!
