My son and I had a fantastic afternoon creating our own set of collage cards using the Glob Collage Kit. The collage kit includes two mixing tins, eight handmade plantable greeting cards with wildflower seeds (envelopes included), a bamboo paintbrush, several nature inspired collage materials and four botanical paint packets including Lemon Verbena (yellow), Blueberry (blue), Pomegranate (red), and Basil (green) - all of which smell fantastic and are super fun to work with! Kids will enjoy this simple, fun project, which gives them the tools to create their own collage card masterpieces. Also, Glob Collage Kit's would make the perfect green gift for the next kid's birthday party you're planning to attend. Read on to see the finished collage cards that my son and I made together.
What is included
– 4 natural pigment paints
– 2 mixing tins
– bamboo paintbrush
– natural collage materials
– 8 plantable wildflower cards and envelopes
How to Get Started:
Step 1: Mix your Glob Pigment Paints
Mix equal parts pigment paint and water in the mixing tins or another art palette. We used a recycled egg carton, since we were already using it to create another Glob inspired art project! The colors are bright, vivid and smell amazing, your children will love them.
Step 2: Give them Glob and they will Create
Give each of your children some of the botanical infused blank cards and allow them to create any type of artwork that they can dream of. My son automatically started to create nature inspired artwork!
Step 3: Add the Nature Collage Materials
Each of the natural collage materials will easily attach to the paint on the cards. Encourage your child to stick the collage materials onto the cards before they dry.
Step 4: Let them Dry
Allow the completed collage cards to dry completely, then pair them up with the matching envelopes.
Step 5: Send a Greeting
Encourage your child to use their collage cards to send thoughtful messages to friends and family members. This is a great time to send thank you notes for birthday gifts or summer weekend’s spent at a friend or relative’s home. You could also wrap up the set of completed collage cards and give them to grandma for Grandparents Day. The best part, once the recipient has enjoyed the card, it can be planted in the garden and wildflowers will grow!
