Back To School Collage

The girls made this 
"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,
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.

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