Kids' Tissue Paper Collage Made Easy with Double-Sided Tape!

Double-sided tape is sort if my new obsession. Recently, I’ve used it for a few different kids’ art activities – a textured sensory sand craft and a sparkly glitter project. This time we’re combining it with tissue paper to make a crafty collage!

Tissue Paper

This is a majorly easy children’s art project. It takes the typical glue and tissue paper collage, and makes it super-simple. Your child still gets the same sensory experience (with the texture of the tissue), but it doesn’t involve the extra mess of the glue. Don’t get me wrong – I’m always up for a messy art activity. But, there are some times when this just isn’t possible or you just don’t have the time for a major cleanup. This project is perfect if you’re traveling (toss the materials into a baggie) or just don’t feel like peeling school glue out of your child’s hair for the next few hours.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Double-sided tape

·        Card stock paper

·        Tissue paper

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Tear the tissue paper into small-sized pieces. You can also cut it if your child wants extra scissors practice.

2.     Stick the tape on to the paper. We made a flower by adding a vertical piece in the center, and then diagonal pieces on top. Later we added two triangle tape shapes to make leaves.

3.     Press the tissue onto the tape. Your child can press the paper on flat (like the green stem) or crumple it and make it fluffy (like the petals).

Collage art

Your child doesn’t have to make a flower. She can pick any tissue paper collage design that she wants. She can make a garden scene, a beach, her dog, a house or even an abstract piece of art. Change up the texture by using flat pieces, small-sized fluffy pieces and bigger crimpled tissue.

  6. One of the main reasons to buy into the Sonos audio ecosystem instead of the smart speakers from Amazon, Google, or Apple is overall flexibility: Sonos simply makes more kinds of audio products than any of the other players, and that means you can build a relatively custom home audio system very simply. The unheralded key to that flexibility for years has been the $499 Sonos AMP Amazon Prime Day, which is exactly what it sounds like: a small Sonos-connected amplifier that can drive any standard speakers.

  10. Travel also has the power to teach you valuable life lessons. It teaches adaptability, as you navigate through unfamiliar landscapes and cultures. It fosters independence, as you make decisions and solve problems on the go. It cultivates patience, as you wait for flights, buses, or trains. It encourages open-mindedness, as you embrace new customs and perspectives. Ultimately, travel is a classroom without walls, where the lessons learned are etched into your character.keta
