Glueless collage

We've got a bit of a winter weather theme going on in the playroom at the moment, how long that will last or how long it takes to evolve is a different matter! But it seemed appropriate with the weather just starting to get cold- maybe it will snow soon? Here is an art area for children to make moveable collages in picture frames and mirror.
The collage items are loosely wintery in nature, the blue picture frames containing some wintery inspiration. The black button has "can you make patterns on the frames?" recorded onto it."
The red button says "These pieces are really tiny, if you drop them pick them up" The colour paddles just add another dimension to view.

I added a children's camera to the display so pictures could be taken of their creations here are the first of two such pictures.

I also added a nice little kaleidoscope next to the mirror frame (again for inspiration and comparison)


  1. Love this - great use of frames! I like to see the kids art work in frames! The mirror is a good addition!

  2. I like the message buttons so the children can access this at any time - wonderfully set up

  3. What wonderful ideas! Where do you get message buttons?

  4. Glad you are liking the glueless collage, and the message buttons. The buttons are available in UK from several sources, such as inclusive technology, I have googled for sources in the US but haven't been successful. But here is the link for UKhttp://www.inclusive.co.uk/talking-button-p2107
    I will post some other uses of the buttons (they are numerous!)
