Note of caution:

 This activity is not the faint at heart.

  YOU WILL make a colorful mess… easy clean-up at least!

  This is one of those projects that is as fun to set up as it is to use.

I used my favorite adhesive—modge podge— to personalize the front of box.  Big brother K helped me add a inspiration template that sits underneath the shapes—sketches for collage themes: trains, buses, houses, castles…

  Now we can go shape {collage} crazy!!!

Shape collage art is such a fantastic rainy-anyday art activity.

 It works great for us because almost ANY age can enjoy, create and participate.  

  Thank so much for the idea— LETS EXPLORE!
