To make the Life on the Farm Paper Collage Art for Kids-
Place the Blue A4 sized Corrugated sheet as the background . I stuck it on a cardboard to add support for our craft.
To add layers, cut hill shapes from green felt sheets . Using glue gun, stuck them in place.The third layer was the light green hill in the bottom of the picture.
While using Corrugated sheets,contrast the grooves. It brings the 3D effect. ie. the lower corrugated sheet was kept with horizontal grooves, the layer above it has vertical grooves. Add the barn house made with red corrugated sheet and embellish with a door cut from another piece. Use a black marker for added effect.
No farm is complete without a tractor .. Add a tractor, some wheels and an apple tree. All cutouts are from corrugated sheets.
Add some Foam farm animal cutouts, Clouds, flowers & the farm scene is ready.You can add more trees, maybe a swing, make a park scene or even make a circus scene. The ideas are endless.
If you don’t have corrugated sheets you can used coloured papers and felt. Most of these cutouts are available in shops like Itsy Bitsy and online too. If you have wild animal cutouts you can make a jungle. Use your stickers in fun ways like this. You sing the songs, you know the animals, now bring the farm to life with Life on the Farm Paper Collage Art for Kids
