Eric Carle Style Butterfly Collage
1st Grade
I love to do Eric Carle style collages! The first day we paint our paper and create texture and patterns using combs, chopsticks, clipper guards (yes for hair cuts - they make neat patterns) and splatter painting. We work in 4 stations and when they complete 1 texture they move to the next station. These are put up to dry. Day 2 each child uses their 4 unique papers to cut and create a collage. If the children are young I will give them templates to trace and cut. We added green construction paper to create leaves and stems and tissue paper and starch to make a flower for our butterflies. To top it off i put out some glitter glue to really jazz them up.
