Activity: Cool Collager

Simple art activities provide children much more than just entertainment. They can be an activity for fine motor coordination, recognising colours and of course to provide a sense of accomplishment. Paper collage is a technique for creating art that combines cutting or tearing paper into various shapes with gluing and assembling. These torn paper forms and shapes eventually create a whole image.

You can use the coloured bits of paper from our previous activity, Super Shredder.
