Collage for kids


COLLAGE Set up:

- 1 thick sheet of white paper for each child
- glue (recipe below) in pots and paint brush
- coloured paper in a variety of colours and
   patterns and textures

What I noticed:
  • the children did not go near this activity until I sat down and started ripping paper;
  • all ages from 18 months can rip paper;
  • children enjoyed gluing and using lots of glue;
  • there was a lot of glue on top of the paper so we got the glitter to shake all over; 
  • each child created their own individual art work; 
  • some of the older children spent time choosing texture, shape and colour before pasting each piece onto a white sheet.
  • all the children wanted glitter except 1 who was very involved with the blocks by then.
More 'process more important than product' art ideas.

Recipe for glue:
12 level tablespoons of cornflour
1 cup of cold water
Boiling water
In a measuring jug mix cornflour and cold water together and then add boiling water, as you stir, up to 1200mls.
Boil this, constantly stirring, until it turns clear.
Store in fridge.
