Wordless Wednesday: Toddler collage

Today's "Wordless" Wednesday inspired by this No Time for Flashcards Valentine's Day collage, though there is a more recent shamrock collage as well.

Special art supplies? Bah. Let's use leftovers and recycling (i.e., trash).
Dedicated art space? ... Um, how about the couch?

Sprinkling glitter star confetti. I bought this confetti an eon ago to put into letters.
No one enjoys getting confetti in letters, I soon found out.

They look almost like my inspirations, yes?

And this, my friends, is why I don't run a craft blog. Fortunately, my 2-year-old doesn't know the difference and keeps asking to cut and glue. Thanks for the inspiration, Allie!

I have a few of those around the house. I love how much little kids get into crafts.

Looks so fun, we should try it at our house!

Adorable! I think those are great collages for a toddler, and more importantly, looks like you had lots of fun :)

I think those collages are very crafty indeed!! Cute kid pics, too.

When I saw the collage heart on No Time For Flashcards, I bookmarked it so we could do it at home. I think ours would end up looking more like yours, though. :)

This is such a good idea! Might have to do that today - I've got a couple littles to entertain and they love their crafts.

very very cute! I love it.

If you want more glue ideas, we did drizzling glue on black paper cut in a circle like a plate, then breaking spaghetti on it, then more glue drizzle and then sprinkle sparkles on it (like parm. cheese!).

it's perfect for small toddlers. When older we did breaking the spaghetti and spelling letters with them (with glue on black paper).

Your collages are great! We are most definitely going to try some with the huge bag of ribbon I've been saving!
