One Color Collages
Make a simple collage with your toddler or a group of toddlers using a mono chromatic color theme. For example create a collage using just the color red. Cut out red items from magazines, cards or scrap booking papers. Red objects like plastic bottle lids, toy cars, yarn, stickers, or cloth can be added too giving the project more of a layered look to it.
The effect of using just one color is very interesting because of the wide variety of shapes and textures within the piece. It'll be fun for the children to see just how many things they can find and put in one picture that are all the same color.
Themes for Collages
Food as Art
A great way to start a collage is to use one large object to serve as a focal point. It's then easy to build around it with smaller items or pictures.
To find pictures of food check your local newspapers for grocery circulars. Also food packaging within your own home can come it handy for making a fun food collage. You can even add a few coupons to the food collage. Play food items are fun to add as well as other plastic fruits and vegetables.
To glue items cut out from newspapers and magazines a basic glue sticks work just fine. For larger items good old Elmer's glue will do. Just give it time to dry before moving the project around to much, preferably overnight.
