Collage with little fingers

Such colorful collage

Yep, another Peelu & Lukey afternoon craft session. What can I say - we're addicted! Here's the start, it's really easy, just grab a bunch of stuff that little kids can glue down! Here you can see that we used several crafty items that we have on hand: dyed pasta beads, buttons, patterned paper, tissue paper, feathers, sticks, pipe cleaners, fabric scraps, foamies.

The start

A handful here and there was enough for these two to choose from.

It's so cute how they work around each other

Oh yeah, I used recycled frozen lunch containers for their collage tray. These work great for contained crafts for little ones. And we just used regular white glue to stick everything down. I did direct them a bit to start with a background first, explaining that the "flat stuff" covers the black container easier and makes for a nice background for the more 3-dimensional objects. They just LOVED picking items and gluing them down!

Peelu sure can wield a glue bottle! And Lukey had some definite design ideas. They were so darn proud of themselves and excited to show their collages off!

What a cutie!"See mine, see mine!!"

They were so happy!

Yay! Another great crafter-noon with two of my favorite mini-crafters.
