Use your imagination to create a pretty collage, made out of whatever materials you have around. You might want to create an example to show your kids what you will be doing before they start, or you can just give them the materials and let their creative spirits run free!
Use black construction paper as a background to make the colors in your collage really stand out. Crayons and colored pencils will still show up over the black paper and you can also color on lighter paper that you have added to your craft.
Big flowers, rainbows, and hearts are a few ideas to get you started, but with a little imagination, you will be coming up with all sorts of pretty pictures!

For The Craft:
Results will vary based on the materials you use. I had a bunch of extra die cuts lying around so I used them to make one of the collages shown above. I added plastic buttons and googly eyes to my collages. Check your local art store for more ideas!
