Open Ended Art ~ Initial Collages

During Art Group the girls made Initial Collages.  We had kids from 14 months to 4 1/2 working on this project.  They were all able to participate in it, some were just more into it than others.

I cut pieces of poster board into the initials of the girls first names.  Then they used markers to color all over them.  Finally, they were able to glue on all the different materials.  I had different types of fabric, ribbons, felt, tin foil, sandpaper, tulle and tissue paper.

E for Emily

J for Juliette

Emily and Juliette had fun working on these collages!

I am thinking of mounting them on colored paper and framing them in their rooms.

Love it! What a fun way to learn that initial letter sound in their names!
