An easy activity inspired by one of our new summer prints.
by Team Primary
Art class is in session! This summer, we launched some brand new prints for kids, baby, and grown ups inour best-selling PJs, tees, and activewear. Follow along for easy DIYs and art projects for kids, inspired by our vibrant new dots, stripes, waves, tie-dye, and more.
Today's craft is a colorful paper cut-out collage dreamed up by Primary Art Director, Fran. Check out each step of Fran's collage process to get inspired! To get started, grab some of the supplies we've listed below:
Different color construction paper
We kept it pretty simple, but kids can add any decoration they want with things like markers, stickers, or glitter.
Step 1: Create easy cutting guidelines by folding
Fran chose a color palette of orange, pink and yellow, which pops perfectly on the cool blue she's working with. The blue squares she's creating will be the background for brighter, more unique shapes!
Step 2: Cut your basic pieces and arrange on one piece of paper
Think of this step as laying out your canvas: once you have some sort of structure on your page, it's easier to fill in other elements.
Step 3: Cut some more shapes and arrange
This is where we get creative! The structure of the blue squares helps tie together all the different squiggles of color that Fran's adding. Setting up a background like this for kids might help them get started.
Step 4: Glue everything down
Once you're happy with how everything's looking, apply a thin layer of glue and press down! Hang up the whole family's creations and see how everyone collaged differently.
