We’ve just finished ordering seeds for the garden ready for the Spring (roll on!) and so have a few seed catalogues lying around. Rather than put them straight in the recycling bin we were inspired to make a garden landscape picture.
We used a long roll of white paper, but the back of an old roll of wall paper would be a good alternative.
With four artists at work we set up 4 stations along the roll with crayons and glue sticks. The older children went through the catalogues and cut out lots of the flower illustrations and then everyone set to work. The younger children enjoyed using the glue to stick on a bright collage of flowers.
The older ones concentrated on adding their own illustrations, with lots of talk about hanging baskets and mini beasts.
