Fruit Patch Collage

Fruit Patch Collage craft

Toddlers create their first still-life art, a torn-paper collage with shiny, crayon-colored, healthy fruits!

  • 1.

    Shiny fruits look so yummy! Sometimes fruits are coated with a little wax to help keep them fresh. If you gently rub an apple, it will shine, too. Now you can make a pretend bowl full of colorful fruit. They'll have their own waxy shine (from crayon wax, that is).

    On construction paper, draw big patches of fruity colors with Crayola® Large Washable Crayons. Rub the colors with a piece of paper towel until they shine.

    Tear the color patches into fruit shapes. Can you create oranges, bananas, and kiwi? How about mangos or tangerines? Apricots or grapes?

    Arrange your fruit into a collage on another sheet of paper. Your fruit could be in a field, ready to pick. Or bunch your fruit together in a bowl. Keep pictures in place with a Crayola Glue Stick.

    For even more fun, make another collage with fresh veggies!
