Christmas Collage

Christmas Collage

As I was wrapping some gifts over the past week, I thought about all the scraps of wrapping paper, ribbon, old bows etc that are just thrown out. The kids can use these things for different art projects. One is a collage. You can even use extra materials from decorating the tree or from homemade gifts you might be working on. I don’t have any examples of these, but I thought the idea might be useful for someone’s lesson plan or project at home.

Materials that you can use:
Wrapping paper scraps,
Old bows,
Scraps of ribbon,
Felt or other fabric pieces,
Candy cane or other Christmas candy wrappers,
Pine needles,
Pine cones,
And anything else you might have that would fit in with a Christmas collage.
Another idea is to sprinkle on a little bit of cinnamon, coco or another powdered spice that might remind you of winter and Christmas.
If the kids are old enough, they can cut out a snowflake, gingerbread man, gingerbread house, snowman, stocking, Santa, Christmas tree, candy cane, or any other winter pattern and glue the materials to it.
Give them the materials and see what they create!
