Our Collage Kit

Pin It
Hey friends, while I'm my little blog-break I thought I'd share some older posts for your inspiration. Here's one of our favourite art kits, still going strong in this house!

Recently I posted about our 'playdough centre' so I thought I'd share another of our art-time kits. I got this plastic clip-top case in one of those Smash and Grab type shops, I think it's meant for sewing supplies or fishing tackle or something - but we filled ours with collage supplies.

We have compartments for all sorts of bits and pieces - cut up straws, rubber bands, foam numbers, pipe cleaners, felt pieces, torn tissue paper, cut up birthday cards and magazines, postage labels, stickers, googly eyes, post-it notes, pom poms and lots  of other bits and scraps from my craft stash.

The only thing I bought new for this set was the box itself, everything else comes from my stash and my hoarding tendencies. As they are making masterpieces I have been re-filling the compartments, and each time I've tried to include something new for them to explore and use.

I got these tiny kids scissors with a set free with a kiddos art magazine, they barely even cut through paper but it's good practise for little fingers without worrying about them lopping one of those fingers off! I've got my eye out for some mini glue-sticks, we definitely need more than one since the kiddos love the gluestick the most!

The first couple of times we had this out , of course the contents got dumped all over the floor. But I took the same approach as I did with our first sensory tub - it's all part of the experience. And after a couple of explorations on the floor, they soon realised it was easier to keep all the stuff in their compartments.

We've made so many collage-y masterpieces, I'm quite surprised at how popular this has been!
