Distribute standard paper for a background, and divide up colorful collage papers into groups for the students to work with. The cut and glue shapes to the background as needed. (I found a high end stationary store that was willing to donate their damaged imported papers to me.) This art came out of a class that was working with a Valentine Card theme, but a birthday card was needed for a missing student and voila!
This is the image that started it all. I was volunteering in my son’s 2nd grade class and two students went off to a corner to make a birthday card for a friend. I turned around to see this, and my view of what kids can create has never been the same since.
