Collaborative Art: Watercolor Resist Collage
Here's a project that my four-year-old and two-year-old both participated in, and I think would have worked well if we had a wider age range too.
I arranged the painted squares close together, grid-style on a piece of cardboard. Each girl did as many squares as she liked.
In between the pictures, I put black electrical tape, and to finish it off, I trimmed the cardboard with scissors so that none of it showed.
1) It was an art project (as opposed to a craft where there was a set result). The girls had some room to express their creativity.
2) The final result was something beautiful I could hang on my wall.
The only trouble is that the electrical tape keeps peeling off from the cardboard. Does anyone have an idea of how I could remedy that?

I love it! They picked some great colors.
Lovely piece of art.
You could try Modge Podge to keep the tape from peeling up.
Painters tape works great! Love this result!
Kids did a great job!!! Love how you made a collage of it and used electrical tape!!
I do something similar with kids but use masking tape on calico with acrylics. What you have done looks FABULOUS! Instead of tape in between the pieces perhaps you could just paint it black. I love how its a 'collaborative' piece. Lovely
This is SO pretty! I LOVE your idea of grouping several together to create a collage effect. Thanks!
