Art Lesson with Little Kids: Collage

This week, I had an art class with the "little kids". I decided to give the younger siblings of the kids I'm teaching a chance to have art class so they don't feel left out, since their older siblings get to come have art. Since the kids are so young, this class is less of an "art class" and more of a "craft time". I've decided to alternate weeks between older kids and younger kids. This was the first week with the youngin's. The group has two 4 year olds, one 3 year old, and one 2 year old.

We did a simple collage project. I cut out little person shapes with my Cricut and had the kids color them, then had them color a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper for the background, then had them color a smaller piece of paper to cut out pieces for a "house" and glue them onto the background paper. I kept it really simple, and they all seemed to enjoy it!

Can you tell which work is from the two 4 year olds, the 3 year old, and the 2 year old? ;)

The 2 year old had a hard time following directions...but hey, she's 2! She seemed content to just color and be a part of the class though.

For the next "Little Kid" class, I am planning a project using watercolors and my Button stamps, similar to a project I did myself. I may even do that project for the older kids too.
