Family Culture Collages

You Will Need:

Construction paper, glue, scissors, markers, stickers, photographs, and small items (golf tees, barrettes, ruler, etc.)

Directions:

Talk with your child about your family’s culture and interests. Then, work with her to create a collage that reflects them. Talk with her about what should be on the collage and help her find and select the items or photographs.

Tip:

For each item or photograph your child chooses to include, write down her reason for choosing to put it in her collage. If she selects heavy objects to attach, you may need to provide heavier paper or cardboard for the base of the collage, or have her turn the project into a 3-dimensional sculpture. Keep small pieces away from younger children, as they may pose a choking hazard.
