Materials

  • White glue
  • Water
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Wax paper
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Dark-colored construction paper (optional)
  • Contact paper
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Tissue paper scraps in fall colors

Instructions

  • Thin the glue with water and a few drops of dish soap.
  • Tear off a sheet of wax paper that’s about twice as long as the collage you wish to create.
  • Fold it in half, then open it.
  • Have your child brush the glue on one half of the wax paper, then stick the tissue paper scraps onto the glue.
  • Brush more glue on top of the tissue paper, then fold the other half of the wax paper onto the design.
  • Press and smooth the paper, then let it dry for several hours.
  • If you like, cut dark-colored paper strips and glue them around the edges of the collage as a frame. Or use one of these suggestions:
    • Substitute clear contact paper (sticky side up) for wax paper and glue.
    • Cut the finished collage into strips and use them as bookmarks. Punch a hole in the top of each bookmark and add a ribbon tassel.
