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.

Directions

This craft is pretty self-explanatory and results will vary based on what kid of materials you use.  You will simply use your imagination to create a pretty picture, 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!

I had a bunch of extra die cuts lying around so I used them to make the construction paper collage shown in the picture above.I also added some plastic buttons and google eyes to my craft.

If you don’t have die cut shapes then just cut shapes out of scrap paper. You can even use a fun hole punch and sequins to decorate the collage. Check your local art store for more ideas!

Constuction Paper Flowers

Materials

  • gluesticks
  • scissors
  • construction paper

Directions:

To make daisies – start by gluing a small circle of paper to the main piece of construction paper. Place larger pieces of paper
around the small circle to make pedals. Round off the edges of the paper pieces to look more like flower pedals and glue to the background.

To make tulips – cut half ovals and circles and place the flat side up. Add a stem and some leaves using green construction paper.

For other flowers – any shape or combination of shapes will resemble a flower when you simply add a stem using a long green strip of construction paper.

To make a leaf – glue a short little green piece of construction paper to the stem.

To make a butterfly use 2 larger pieces for the top wings and two smaller pieces for the bottom half. Then glue small colored pieces of paper symmetrically onto the wings.

Cut a circle out of yellow or orange construction paper to make a sun.

For the grass – Cut a strip of green construction paper and snip it along the edges.
