Toddler/Preschool Art Idea - Make a Collage

Collages are a fun and easy way for little ones to express their creativity. To create a collage, have your toddler put small pieces of tissue paper onto one half of a piece of contact paper. Fold the contact paper over, punch a hole in the top and tie a piece of yarn through it to create a sun catcher.

You can also make collages by gluing pieces of construction paper, fabric or cotton balls. You can create collages on shoe boxes, plastic bottles, cardboard and construction paper. To keep the mess down, show your child how to use a glue stick. For older toddlers, you can put a small amount of glue in the lid of a plastic bottle and show her how to spread the glue using a q-tip.
