Hamburger Collage

Construction paper hamburger collage


Students will make hamburger collages using colored construction paper


  • Review shapes and learn about shapes.
  • Improve their cutting skills by cutting shapes.
  • Learn about collage by creating a cut paper hamburger.

What You Need:

  • 9×12 black construction paper
  • crayons or markers
  • construction paper – various colors (brown, green, red, white, orange, yellow etc.)
  • scissors
  • glue

What You Do:

  1. Have some sample cut outs ready for your demonstration (ie: hamburger bun, tomato slices, blobs for ketchup and mustard, pickles, lettuce, swirls for onions, etc.) See image above for ideas.
  2. Show students how they can “build” a hamburger using construction paper.
  3. Demonstrate by gluing the various pieces down on a dark colored construction paper (we used black). Start with the bottom bun, add some ketchup, mustard and mayo. Layer the beef patty, a slice of cheese, lettuce, tomato slices, pickles, onions, etc. Finish off with the top bun.
  4. Crayon or marker can be used to add enhancements to the paper (grill marks on the patty, texture on the tomatoes, etc.)
  5. After the demonstration, allow the students to create their own hamburgers (or hot dogs, or submarine sandwiches).
