For this project I cut pieces of coloured paper of various shapes and sizes. Finn decided to create a robot for this one (naturally), so he asked me to cut out grabby claws and buttons. He had full control over where the shapes were placed and we were both delighted that he was able to create recognisable images. Children love glue and Finn is no exception. Try to encourage children to wipe the excess glue off the brush, and try not to rush their work.
Materials needed: Watered down PVA glue, cut out shapes of coloured paper of different sizes, textures. Your child may ask for extra shapes once the image is emerging.
