Before you toss out your next magazine, consider cutting out different colors and textures to create your own magazine picture collage. This tree picture that we made for Landon's room is made entirely of cereal boxes and cut up magazine pictures mounted in an old frame I wasn't using. You can make your own picture as detailed or as abstract as you wish, based on the size, shapes, and textures you choose to cut out. Keep similiar colors organized in their own envelopes or ziploc bags to make putting your picture together a little easier. This is a collage, not a mosaic, so think in layers as you and your child go glue-crazy.
