I got in touch and was sent these lovely bits to use on our collaborative 'masterpiece'.
Let me tell you the 'Collage Toolobox' is a treasure trove!
All these bits are a teacher's dream!
First of all I put some of the card down for Eliot to pick a colour. I also put some PVA glue in an old pot but had to improvise for a spreader as I didn't have one. So it was one of the lollipop sticks from the toolkit. On closer inspection of the lovely collage bits I also found a little glue pen, perfect for small hands and less mess! I used both in our creation.
I'll let Eliot explain the rest :)
I'm Eliot and I'm seven months old. I love having cuddles and have just learnt how to give kisses, so mummy and I thought it would be nice to create a card that represents these things. As my fine manipulative skills are not like mummy's yet, she had to do all the sticking and cutting but I chose the collage bits I wanted to put on my special card.
First mummy put me in my high chair to get cracking on our valentines art competition entry. I chose yellow card to for mummy to stick all the bits on.
Here I am, raring to go!
'Yes I'm sure I want yellow mum, now lets get started!'
Next mummy put some foam shapes on my highchair. I liked them all so mummy stuck them all on the yellow card.
Helping mum pick up a foam heart.
So this is what it looked like after we stuck the foam shapes on.
Then I chose a shiny pom pom decoration.
Next Mummy let me explore the foam letters and she spelt out 'Love' & 'Hug' before sticking them on.
Here's how it looked...
It was getting close to bottle time!
Then it was time to choose a gem to add some more detail to the card.
Until it looked like this! Then she used the red glitter pen to add a mouth to our 'huggy heart'.
Finally she used the glitter pen to add more detail.
And voila...we were finished!
I think I will give this to my grandparents!
What do you think?
