Collage started

Yesterday we watched the DVD the Correspondence school had sent on "Collage". Ruth was very excited to go around the house collecting "treasures".
Then she chose an egg carton to paint.

Today I made up some of the "paste" they had sent with and Ruth had a wonderful time sticking all different things onto her creation.
They also sent a pair of scissors and Ruth has learnt really quickly how to use them. They are nice and sharp (although rounded on the end) as apparently children cut themselves more on blunt scissors because they have to put so much more effort into the cutting.
And once the box was done Ruth was not. So she continued to do some cutting and pasting.
She has had so much fun and I can see that making Collages is going to be a very regular event now.
