Summer Collages

I recently bought some poster board for the kids and I to make some collages.  It turned out to be a good idea.  We googled "collage" and spent ten minutes or so looking at different collages so the kids would kind of know what a collage was.  The kids worked on them for about 3 and half hours this afternoon.  We used paint, leaves, newspaper, markers, oil pastels, gesso and sand.  All in all they turned out pretty good.  The kids were so excited to hang them in their room.
First up Lilly's:  I love how colorful hers is.

Next, Max: Max's has good texture and layering and all the dog pictures he could find.  Even though he covered up all but one of them.  Can you find it?

Lastly here's mine:  Not at all what I pictured when we started but it was a fun relaxing afternoon spent outside in the shade, on blankets.
