I have done this activity with a couple of my Year 4 (8-9 year old) classes before and they have loved it. It's simple but fun and very effective!

Take an old magazine or two and cut out squares of pictures which are full of interesting colours and shapes.

Get each child to stick one picture in the centre of a piece of paper and give them crayons or pastels to work with.

They need to try and blend their colours to match the colours on the square, and extend the picture out either using the shapes in the square as a motif or a pattern, or incorporating the square into a larger picture.

If you wanted to challenge them you could get them to stick two pictures on and somehow incorporate both!

I did this craft last night with my 12 year old son. He really enjoyed it!

I'd love to see it too!

I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of the ones I did with kids in school. I wish I did because it works really well.

This is a good idea. You can also take a glass and ask your kids to paste it to inner side of the glass and look how it turns out.
