We needed to replenish our collage/modelling supplies, so I sent a request home to parents for recycling material. I got a great response and the children who brought stuff in were particularly enthusiastic about creating. The flurry of (independent) activity resulted in an enormous pile of un-named pieces with only a few being claimed. I hate throwing out the childrens art work so I decided to make a display with them.
I glued all the pieces onto two sheets of foam board with a hot glue gun.
The following day I set the boards up on a table and put paint, glue, glue sticks, sequins and other collage material on another and let them go for it.
The result was a lot more restrained than I had expected and has given us lots of examples of 'patterns' for us to find this week as our maths focus. I wonder though if the two panels might look better together to give the illusion of one big panel?
