Wrapping Paper Collage

I’m always trying to find art projects that go beyond painting, and I got this idea when I came across a bag of wrapping paper scraps in a basement closet. Love Bug likes cutting and gluing things (though sometimes he wants to do the gluing before the cutting), so I thought this would be a nice change of the usual construction paper gluing.


We put glue down all over a sheet of construction paper and then he covered it with layers of different types of wrapping paper. It’s mostly Christmasy, and he really liked using this one reindeer paper. He enjoyed it and wanted to make a second one.

I tried to get Sweet Pea to make one too, but we were doing this in the garage and he was more interested in playing with Love Bug’s bike since it wasn’t being used for a change.



About Kelly

I'm a stay-at-home mom to two boys and a girl. My Love Bug is 4 and has been doing art projects since just after turning 2. My Sweet Pea is 2 and tries to do everything his brother does. Little Flower is 4 months and has no idea of all the fun she has ahead of her.
