This fun and easy collage only requires a few materials, and is a great way for kids to mess around with their acrylic paints and glue. Itís also a good way to recycle colourful plastic lids from old jars and bottles, buttons, bread ties, old plastic toys (or pieces of toys) Ė and anything else you might want to throw in.
Like many craft activities, this one is very flexible and easy to adapt to suit different age-groups and situations. For example, you can do it at home with just one or two children, or create a mural at your school with an entire class, if youíre an educator. Itís also a colourful and effective way to decorate cardboard boxes which can then be used as attractive storage containers for your childís bedroom.
Creating a fantastic plastic collage is heaps of fun. Just use the steps below as a guide, and add your own personal touches as you go. As with all craft activities, there is no right or wrong way.
: Approximately 90 minutes - not counting drying time for the paint.
