Kids love scratch art because it’s like magic for them. All you need is scratch paper which is easy to find in art and craft stores and a scratching tool. Of course if you prefer to make your own paper -which I love to teach my kids how, see this fun and easy tutorial.
For this lesson, my Kinder kiddies were learning about Fairy tales so of course what do you think happens when you combine castles, fairies, princesses, battles, knights in shining armor and some dragons? You have a sure winner!

End of year means you have a lot of excess cardboard lying around so what better way to use it then by doing a lesson on collage!
I cut up a bunch of cardboard into different sizes and put them in trays for kids to choose freely. Each child was given a larger cardboard where their creations would be glued.
They ‘planned’ their ideas and placed pieces all around and ‘layered’ other pieces. They don’t need to make a picture but to just to have fun arranging the cardboard pieces to make an ‘abstract’ work of art. Of course some ended up making a picture which was Ok too.
The kids really enjoyed this and were ready to glue each piece. This was tricky because they had to move the pieces around , glue and remember where everything went. This was a great opportunity for them to be patient, and to really think about what they were doing.
Finally when everything was glued and dry they painted they work. Make sure the students paint two layers and are careful to paint around the pieces. Some experimented with splattering paint and the effect was great.
Didn’t these come out beautiful?
