Heart Collage Craft

My son was aching to use this crinkly red paper that came in a gift basket last week. So I gathered it and some other random red materials for some “messy art” which is my son’s name for a collage.  He loves pretending he is a garbage truck dumping the materials into the landfill. I am all for pretend play during art time! Collages are a fun way to use up scraps, and make beautiful art.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some cardboard, scissors, a marker, glue , red paint and /or glitter glue, and a mix of red materials like tissue paper, foam, construction paper and fun red paper like these fillers.Heart Collage Craft
  2. Start by having your child if they are able to cut the paper into smaller pieces. Scissor skills are very important so working it into a project like this is easy , logical and saves you step!Heart Collage Craft
  3. While they do that cut open the cardboard and draw a heart.Heart Collage Craft
  4. Paint it red!Heart Collage Craft
  5. Add glitter.Heart Collage Craft
  6. Add glue. I wiggled the paper as he held the glue, which he thought was hilarious and it prevented big globs.Heart Collage Craft
  7. Add your materials.  This step took 3o seconds- he drizzled a few then he dumped them on and smashed them down.Heart Collage Craft Heart Collage Craft
  8. Let dry and cut out.Heart Collage Craft

My son liked doing this so much when I took his heart to dry he grabbed the extra materials and made one all by himself! Both are proudly displayed !
