I do a fun project with 2nd graders inspired by Eric Carle's artwork. Day
1 - I have the kids choose a sheet of tissue paper and fold it in quarters.
I then have them design each quadrant with different instructions, such
as; use 2 colors and a combination of straight and wavy lines which must go
from one edge to another of the quadrant. The art work is done in oil
pastels. The second day I show them Carle's work and have them cut their
quadrants apart and share them all to create a collaged picture of
something. We sometimes use white paper background and sometimes
The problem is the edges of the collaged pieces always look sloppy because
the tissue runs. Or the glue stains the construction paper. Any ideas to
tidy this up a bit? Thanks! nutmeg
