How to Make an Epic Collage

Hey readers! Its me Lucy Marashian! So the topic of today is…. collages! Lets get started!

how to make a collage for kids

So first, whenever making collages you need paper. I would use card stock or hard colored paper. Then, you get all of your materials. I used…

tape and markers

  • glue
  • tape (we all need tape don’t we?)
  • straws
  • STICKERS!!!
  • Paper (to cut up + you need it for the base)
  • googly eyes
  • pom poms
  • feathers
  • and more!

Guys, all of the materials are optional and you DO NOT have to use them.

Third step, put it all together. Glue, stick, make tape bracelets… Wait, no tape bracelets, unless you want some…. Nevermind. While we are waiting for the glue to dry what do you think my next blog post should be about? Post it down below in the comments. OK glue is dry, so now you hang it up and show it off. Here is mine!

DO NOT FORGET TO WRITE YOUR NAME ON IT! I will ask Theo what he thinks about art. He said, “Pretend school is fun.” You do not have to make the collage look pretty because all art looks different for everyone. One of my favorite things to see in a collage is texture. Who knows, you may have the same liking in art as other people, but its okay to have preferences. Here is a clue for one of my ideas on a blog post.

Ruff ruff guys! (bye bye guys!)

Paint Fun

Hello, everyone! Today we are going to have a special guest. He will be on very soon. He will tell you about what he did with painting, but first, I will tell you about painting.

There is a very fun way to make some lanterns. First, you get plastic cups. I’m guessing you know what to do. No? You don’t know what to do?

First step: Get paint.

Second step: Get paintbrushes.

Third step: Get those plastic cups I told you about.

Fourth step: Paint them.

Then, buy plastic candles. Put tape on the plastic candle and then tape it to the bottom of the cup. Wait for the paint to dry first!

Do you know what inspired me to make this? My school had a fun art night. We got to make very fun projects which you can see below.

Bye, everyone, and I hope you have a fun time making your own lanterns!

Pretend School

Hello, everyone! Today I would like to tell you about pretend school.

That is Theo. He is silly sometimes.

s2

The marble run is recess. You have to have recess or it won’t be like school. I wonder if all schools have recess?

s1

You can teach the people who are doing the pretend school math and other stuff for school.

Collage

You can also see Stuffed Animal School, but that is the class pet. Her name is Tabitha. She likes kids. If you’re teaching older kids, you should have older kid books. If you’re teaching younger kids, you should have younger kid books. The younger kid books you should do “Pete’s a Pizza” and different books. Maybe you could get library books so it looks like there’s a library at your school.

Theo is learning math and he’s looking in his book. He drew the picture. He likes it.

s4

Theo really really wants to see you, and the next blog post is about what to do instead of watching tv.

Painting with Your Family

Hello, everyone. It’s nighttime. I just wanted to tell you about… yawn… painting.

I’m tired tonight. Oh, I have to get back! 

This is called Painting with Your Family. I painted with my brother, Theo. You might see my brother Theo painting in the pictures. He’s good at painting. You can paint whatever you want!

yawn…..zzzz…. What happened?! What happened?!

So if you want to paint a picture you need the droppy things. They’re called eye droppers. Then you will need watercolors. But not the kind where you use a paintbrush, liquid watercolor.

First you squeeze the eye dropper into a paint and then you put it over a piece of paper and then you  squeeze it, let go, and squeeze it again.

I’m tired right now. Okay, let’s get back…

You can use whatever colors you want. Sometimes you need paper towels. If you do, put it over your paper and take it off really quickly. If you don’t, then most of it will go away and you can’t see it good.

So then you should paint it again. But, if not, just do it really quick. You can also make paintings with your paper towels.

zzzz…. Hey! I’m back! Is it the next morning? Um, I don’t think so because it’s dark outside. Okay, here we go…

So as I was saying, you use an eye dropper to put it on paper. Then you lay it outside. If you don’t you will probably get paint in the house. If your hands get messy, go wash them. I had to do that.

So make sure there’s not water near it. If it gets water on it, all the color will go away.

You can also do other art on How to Make a Paper Book for Your Brother or Sister.

I’m tired. Is it time to go to bed yet? Okay, let’s end this…

Bye- bye! Zzzzzzzzzzz
