Sandwich Collage

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kids can make a paper sandwich collage using a variety of paper and found objects.

By Deb Barone [Deb is an art educator at Myerstown Elementary School, Myerstown, PA]

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scrap materials (found objects)
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Give the children long rectangular strips of paper on which to build their sandwiches.
  2. Have pre-cut brown construction paper “bun” shapes for them to glue at either end of the strip.
  3. Instruct the children to chose from the scrap materials to fill in the space between the buns, building a sandwich layer to layer.
  4. Some of the materials we have used are ribbon, felt, burlap, crepe paper, yarn, macaroni, and stickers.
  5. The children enjoy using materials for purposes other than the way they were intended and get a good feel for one meaning of collage.
