Color Collage | CMSMatHome

Color Collage creative kid's activity from the Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota

Today, we’ll work on a color collage. You can start by picking a color, then gathering your supplies: old magazines or newspapers, scissors, markers, paper, and glue. Search your magazines for pictures in the color of your choice, cut them out, and glue to your paper or thin cardboard.

On a separate piece of paper, you can write down words that describe your feelings about the color you chose, cut them out, and add to your art.

Further Your Exploration

  • Write a poem about your color and how it makes you feel.
  • Learn about cool and warm colors, and how they might make people feel.
