This Saturday's theme was collage.
We worked on a project that I found on Pinterest and adapted for small children: Collage Tree.
I had a surplus of 8x10 canvasses that I had the children (I had enough canvasses that the parents were able to make their own, too) paint with acrylic paint.
We set out a couple of blow dryers for them to dry this layer (the class is only an hour, so sometimes we need to speed up the process).
Then they used another color of acrylic to paint a tree.
They decorated their trees with an assortment of materials: scrapbook paper, feathers, buttons, seashells, magazines (cutting words/pictures out to describe themselves).
We ended up with some amazing end results!
