Materials Needed:

Making a collage is not something you need step-by-step instructions for. It is more a matter of experimenting. Collage can be as basic as your child cutting pictures they like out of a magazine and gluing them onto a piece of paper. You can use one type of medium, such as magazine pictures, or combine several together. The more you play around with making collages, the more ideas you will get.

To make your own story or poem collage, simply choose a favorite short story or poem and find collage pictures depicting the verses! This collage can feature items that are related to the story or poem's characters, setting, etc.

Flip through magazines, catalogs, brochures, or even photos and choose pictures. Cut or tear out your desired pictures and arrange and glue them onto your piece of paper.
