Paper Mache pasting with recycled Christmas cards

Christmas is almost here. I am sure we all thought about Holiday cards, but what about the cards we had received in prior years? Yes, I save a lot of them, but not all. Also, what about Christmas paper, wrapping paper, tissue paper, left over ribbons? In the spirit of recycling and reusing, I offered my children to cut the cards in pieces and make them into art  - kind of Paper Mache project.

Some Holiday cards even had stickers on them!

So, save your cards and your wrapping and tissue paper! It is a fun activity for kids that will bring out their creativity and reduce waist! Trust me, this activity is so simple that even your two year old can do it! 

DSC_0247-001This was Adrian's first pasting project with Christmas paper at 26 months.

Have you tried collaging or pasting with your child? Did they have fun?
