Characters straight out of a magazine

This is the second post of the Creative Outburst Fiesta, and it was a blast for us to do.

Got some old magazines? Catalogues or ads in the mail? Let’s cut ’em up and put ’em to good use.

You want to find pictures with clean areas without patterns or text. Then you and the kiddos can add whatever you like on them with markers or pen and make your own collage or story. Simple and fun.

This activity is highly customizable. We used old magazines and catalogues we got in the mail, but you can find a picture online and print it instead. Or you can take a picture with your camera of things you find around you (veggies and fruit are great for this) and print it on regular paper too.

Have fun and as always, we’d love to see your results.
