Holiday Collage Cards

This card-making craft gives all ages a chance to show off their special talents. Some kids are great at ripping out magazine pages, others like the close work of cutting the pages into pieces, and even the youngest children can sort the colors into separate piles. Then they can fill in the picture on their card with the colored-paper pieces, and watch the images appear.

Tip: Grandmas are always a good source for colorful magazines, and so are nail salons.

What You'll Need
  • Old magazines
  • A piece of cardstock
  • Safety scissors
