stay home, stay creative; collage shapes with kids

Making is good for your mind and your soul. So while we’re all staying home, stay creative, and get making with your kids…
We’ve been doing a few crafty projects at home and thought I’d share them.

All you need for this one is a bunch of old magazines (we used old tv times from grandma!), some scissors, and glue.
Pick your favourite shape and cut it out in 3 sizes, then collage colour in with your 3 favourite colours.
This one is a star shape coloured with blue, green and orange.

After collaging, you can re-cut the shape neatly from the back and then stick onto your choice of paper/sketchbook.
This one is a heart shape coloured with pink, purple and orange.

p.s If you collage both sides of the shapes, they can also be made into mobiles.
