Do you read The Artful Parent? She is one of my favorite art blog writers. I have learned a lot from her on how to parent artistically. She often does collages with her kids using contact paper. I have wanted to this for some time, but kept forgetting to buy contact paper. I finally got some the other day and put a piece up for my two year old. Then I had my other two children scour old magazines for pictures of animals and cut them out. Grace still isn't the best at saying the animals or animal sounds (she thinks all animals say "moo" for some reason.) This was a really fun activity for all my children.
|I just taped the contact paper to the wall so she had a work surface|
|We have lots of magazines from wildlife Ohio and the Zoo with our membership so animal pictures were in abundance|
|It was fun to watch her be entertained by the other kids as they said, "here Grace an elephant" and handed her the next animal|
