Crocodile Collage Art

Making collages can be so much fun! I love using a variety of materials: magazine clippings, ribbons, bits of colored paper, and photographs are a few of my favorites. Even as a kid I loved making collages – I remember really enjoying the process of arranging and gluing all the paper scraps and then seeing how the project came together at the end.

For today’s project, I’ve made a printable template of a crocodile family to use as a starting point. Print the templates, and follow the brief instructions below for an afternoon of cut and pasting fun! My kids made a few crocodile collages themselves, and they really got into the process. Their faces were just glowing when they saw the final results!
