Create a tiny collection of your favorite items. Call your friends over to peek into your miniature museum--and make their own!
Museums contain large collections of similar and important things. There are art museums, natural history museums, historical museums, and many other kinds.
What will your miniature museum contain? Decide on a theme. Find real, tiny objects if you can. Collect pictures from recycled magazines. Cut them out and trim with Crayola® Scissors.
Lay an empty recycled tissue box so the opening to your museum looks like an arch. Open the top and bottom edges of the back. In the middle, cut a vertical slit from the top to the bottom, making two doors that open. Now you can see inside your museum.
Cut and glue construction paper into the front arch of your box. Cut the paper vertically to make two doors.
Cut construction paper to fit the inside floor and walls of your museum. Glue in place with Crayola School Glue.
Arrange your museum collection on the walls. Glue in place. Create decorative frames for your pictures by drawing around them with a Crayola Marker.
Decorate the outside of your museum, too. If you want to paint it, cover your art area with newspaper. Paint the building with Crayola Washable Kid's Paint and Paint Brushes. Dry.
For a classical-style museum, flatten Crayola Model Magic to create pedestals for columns. Cut short sections of a recycled paper towel roll. Press into pedestals to make columns.
Choose either Doric, Ionic, or Corinthian capitals. Create them with Model Magic. Glue in place at the tops of your columns. Glue to the front of your museum.
Many classical buildings have a structure on the roof called a pediment—a triangle above the front entrances. Create a pediment for your museum by forming a Model Magic triangle. Glue in place.
Decorate your columns, pedestals, capitals, and pediment with Crayola Markers or Gel Markers and Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.
