Color Collage Activity for Toddlers & Preschoolers
My youngest child constantly wants “to do making time” – that’s 3-year-old lingo for craft time – but I don’t always have time to set up an elaborate activity for him. This color collage art is a perfect solution because it’s super quick and easy to prepare, and it keeps my son entertained for hours (with minimal adult assistance necessary!)!
What You’ll Need:
- Construction Paper
- Assorted Variety of Colored Objects
- Glue (we used Elmer’s School Glue, but I also LOVE the Elmer’s Early Learners Glue Pen!)
I start by giving him a sheet of colored construction paper and a bottle of Elmer’s School Glue. He makes dots all over his paper while I start pulling random odds and ends out of our art supply cabinet. Feathers, pom poms, sequins, stickers, tissue paper, gift wrap, twine, faux flowers, cupcake wrappers, paint chips, and shaped punches…anything and everything that can be glued down is fair game!
Be sure to have a few more pieces of different colored paper handy because they’ll likely want to make a bunch more after they’re finished with the first one!
Despite his love of messy craft projects, my little collage-maker is a bit obsessive about keeping his hands and work area tidy, so we always keep a container of hand wipes or a wet washcloth nearby so that he can easily clean up.
Plus, those recycled wipes containers make for perfect twine organizers when you’re finished with the wipes!
