Children's art collage by Mini Mad Things

We have a big stash of old artwork at home, any paintings that are fun and colourful but not quite special enough to make it to the 'keep forever' pile, go into the 'recycle into new art' pile. This is the prefect way to reuse those old artworks and make a wonderful new creation. We cut up old pieces of spin art as well as some reject lino print artworks that mummy had made. This project is fine motor skill practice and process art all rolled into one!



To begin with I drew various shape lines on the back of the artwork for my boy to follow and do cutting practice. I was totally surprised by how long he stuck at it and really enjoyed the process. Once we had a big pile, the gluing began. In our SHOP we stock a fab non-toxic, starch based glue called Pro Coll which is perfect for little hands to glue all sorts of paper and cardboard art.

I'm totally in love with the beautiful compositions we made, I think one might be going in a frame on our gallery wall!
