The idea for this project was based on the collage section in First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos, and it's just a basic collage.
|Materials- Paste, Craft Sticks, Cardboard, & Paper Scraps|
Like suggested in the book, I didn't give much direction. Ana immediately started exploring with the craft sticks. (Two pictures? I know it seems redundant, but how could I not share my fourteen month's exploration of her cousin's Boppee in the background! Tee Hee.)
To make a long story short- Ana had a great time. She glued, and at my suggestion, she did a bit of ripping with the paper. Mostly though, she glued all of the paper- full sized- to the cardboard with huge globs of glue. I'm not one to throw out my kids' art, but... there was no practical way to display it! She did get a lot from the experience though, and I learned too. I think this week we will get some interesting magazines out and work on ripping collage-sized pieces. One thing at a time. We live and learn. It's all about the process. (... and having lots of sticky fun!)
