Autumn has arrived and we’re dreaming in reds, oranges, yellows, and browns. Help your child get into the spirit of the season with this simple open-ended collage activity and fall collage landscape craft for kids.
What I like about this project: (1) We’ll start with a hunt for papers in fall colors (2) You can make your own patterned paper (3) Kids can take this in any direction, making this truly open-ended and creativity-boosting.

Make patterned paper: Draw all over brown paper (from grocery bags) with oil pastels in fall colors
Stamp all over a piece of construction paper with a Do-a-dot maker.
Prompt: Invite your child to create
To help spark your child’s curiosity, you could say something like: “Let’s use these paper shapes to make a fall landscape with hills and pumpkins, or something else from your imagination.”

- Glue the pieces down.
