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: 

child using glue on kids craft activityI 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!

Preschool Art Craft - Color CollageMake a big ol’ pile of all the miscellaneous supplies, and then invite your child to fill their paper with collage materials that are the same color. Easy peasy!

Making Preschool Color Collage Art with Elmers and Wet OnesDespite 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.
