Paper Masterpiece!

1. Gather your materials. You will need multicolor scrap paper, plain white paper, scissors and glue.

2. Look at the masterpiece you want to pay homage to. I love this painting and when I showed my son a few different ones he liked this one best.



3. Cut the required paper. I tried to copy the shapes and colors as best I could but there really is no need to be exact. If children are able to cut, let them cut the pieces themselves.

4. Add glue to the edges.

5. Add the frame pieces.

6. Have children add glue and start placing pieces. At first I was directing the activity and things were fine, but then I heard "I do it!" so I conceded. If I am going to preach allowing children to do it themselves, I best practice that too.
