2nd Grade "Princess and the Pea" Collages
To connect with the fairy tale unit the students were working on in their classroom, the students created artwork inspired by the fairy tale, "The Princess and the Pea." First, the students painted a number of small sheets of paper and used tools like sponges, scrapers and toothpicks to create a variety of textures. Then, the students cut the paper in strips to create 20 mattresses that were glued to a piece of construction paper. They used construction paper to create a prince or princess along with their mattress and crayons to add any other details. These pieces are so colorful! It was a great way to use painted paper to create an interesting collage.
