Texture Collage

  1. Gather your materials. You will need a piece of card stock or construction paper, some markers/ crayons, glue and then some smaller pieces of things like feathers, aluminum foil, sand paper- anything that can easily be glued on and have an obvious texture. I used some foam ( squishy), foil wrapping paper ( smooth) and feathers ( soft) .
  2. I had my son start out with markers, because writing / scribbling is an important skill so practicing it is fun and worthwhile, but you don’t need to do this step.
  3. Drizzle or have your child put some glue on the paper.
  4. Put the collage materials on one at a time, talk about how it feels when your child is handling it.
  5. With older children you can ask them to close their eyes , put the collage material into their hands and ask them what it feels like!

    Wow! I’ve just stumbled onto your blog and will visit everyday now. You have excellent ideas! I have 2 daughters (2 and 4) they will love all of these projects and we have many of the same books. Thanks for the inspiration

    I have been looking around and everything is so cute! I have to ask though….do you save EVERYTHING your son makes? What do you do with it all?

      Oh goodness no. Most gets recycled, I take pictures of everything and throw the rest out. I always take off buttons, googly eyes etc… to use again though.
