Christmas Collage

Here's a fun way to use Christmas junk mail. Get a piece of green paper and glue it to a background of red paper.

Cut out the pretty Christmas gifts and ads in the weekly flier or Christmas catalog.

Glue the Christmas items to the green paper.

Cover with white glue using a small paint brush and let dry. Here's a craft where Elmer's glue would work better than tacky glue because Elmer's is a little thinner and will spread over the collage easier. Add just a tad of water to make it spread even easier.

Older children can do the craft all by themselves whereas younger children might just like doing the gluing. Whatever they'd like to do.
