Face Collage

ages 2-6


Old magazines and catalogs, scissors, glue, heavy paper

Activity Detail

Take a stack of old magazines and cut out eyes, noses, mouths, ears, and hair. Then, draw an oval on a piece of drawing paper or construction paper. Give your child the cut-out facial features and the blank oval for a face, and let him or her create a face. Younger children think it's fun to create a silly face. Older children enjoy the task of trying to create a face that looks like someone they know. You can also use this craft to help younger children learn the names of facial features, and older children can work on their cutting skills by helping you cut out the images. All children will work on their fine motor skills by manipulating the pieces of paper and gluing them down.

What a good idea. To make the activity go smoothly, especially with younger (read impatient) children, do your magazine cutting ahead of time. Keep a stash of images at the ready for whenever you need a quick craft project.

What a fun idea! I like that there are benefits for both younger and older children. And it would definitely add interest to try to make faces for each member of your family.

Good practice for fine motor skills too (have them do the cutting).
