Re-Cycled Collaborative Art: Back To School Collage Using Catalogs and Back to School Advertisements


The girls made this adorable "Waiting For the Bus"collage last week. 
They are very excited about heading  back to school!


They cut up a back-to-school kid's clothing catalog.
Our Hanna Andersson Catalog had all of these cute kids with adorable backpacks and
lunch boxes.


They worked together on it  and it was the cutest thing ever
to see my two little girls working side-by-side on a  collaborative art project.
"E" (age 7) did most of the drawing but "C" (age 3) got to help  brainstorm ideas,
pick people to cut out, color, and glue down the photos.

Mom sat down with them and did a bit of coloring and cutting herself. We all had a lot of fun.

Such a fun way to use up all of those back to school newspaper flyers, 



How fun would this be for a back to school project
(or a first week of school) group project for a bulletin board display?
The girls have planned our next pictures to be be a classroom and recess. 

Fondly,

This is adorable! Do you mind if I use this idea when I teach bus safety to my first graders?
