Mixed Media Tutorials - Background collage - Great tip: Tear up pieces of patterned paper & glue them randomly. Start big and then move
Letter K -K is for Key. Kids can tear up the pieces of foil themselves (fine motor skills!) and glue them to key cut-out. Could make keys out of construction paper first.
Introducing.... THE GLUE SPONGE! You just cut a sponge to fit in a container, pour glue it, and the kids can just press their little cut-up pieces of paper on it. No more globby glue puddles! What a great idea for kids and adults!

Glue Stick Saver~ When glue sticks start drying out, rehydrate them instead of throwing them away! Seal each glue stick and a damp paper towel in a resealable plastic bag. (Hint: Snack-size bags work great.) Then set each bag aside for a couple of days, and the glue sticks are as good as new!
I like this technique, not just for Christmas: Cut up pieces of colored tissue paper. Glue them onto a sheet of white paper. 2. Cut this sheet of paper into triangles to make the trees. 3. Paint another sheet of paper with three stripes of watercolor. 4. After the watercolor has dried, glue the trees onto this paper. 5. With marker draw branches and grass. 6. Use a paper punch to cut out white snow.
