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?
