Head Collage

1.7 based on 3 ratings

What You Need:

  • White Paper, 11” x 17”
  • Solid color paper, 11” x 17”
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Magazines
  • Tempera paint
  • Paint brushes

What You Do:

  1. Help draw a silhouette of your child’s head on the white sheet of paper using a pencil and cut it out. If your child isn't used to scissors, assist them in cutting.
  2. Ask your child to list some simple facts about himself. This can include his daily routine, favorite foods, games, colors, or places he’d like to travel to. It can even include pets that he has, or wishes he had and what he wants to be when he grows up.
  3. Find some old magazines and ask him to cut or tear out pictures that reflect who he is or wants to become.
  4. Give him a glue stick and help him glue his pictures inside the silhouette of his head.
  5. If there are any images he couldn’t find in the magazines, let him paint them into the dry silhouette with tempera paint.
  6. Mount the final image onto a solid color piece of paper and hang up the contents of your child’s mind!
