Collage picture: this can be attempted by kids a little older. Any packet, like a breakfast cereal packet can be used to make it. One can assemble together all sorts of odd and ends. Old magazines that no one reads can have their pictures cut out, bits of cute ribbons, old buttons, cotton wool, odd bits of fabric and essentially anything that is not too thick can be used to decorate and ornament.

One may need to help them cut things like the fabric. This is a really great way to enhance a child's creativity and imagination and also work on their motor skills using the glue stick and scissors.
