Imaginary Creatures Collage

The kindergarteners enjoyed using all the scraps leftover from the 3rd grade collagraphs to create their own imaginary creature collages.  It's funny how the scraps left from cutting out evergreen trees made great monster teeth! We read the book Jeepers Creepers: A Monstrous ABC and talked about using our imagination in our artwork.  We started with a symmetrical shape cut from some striped cardstock, which was a nice donation from a parent.  Then we had a ball adding parts to our creatures with scrap paper, cloth, foam, feathers, stickers, and pom-poms.  This is always a great lesson, year after year.

  1. Wonderful collage project. I can see reading "Were the Wild Things Are," and creating a wild thing just like yours.
