Need an easy screen-free activity to take up an afternoon? Repurpose old junk mail into a piece of art that doubles as a story prompt. In this fun and simple activity, kids (and grown-ups) build a face by making a collage. Once each person's face is complete, use the faces as prompts to create characters and build fun and fabulous stories.
This Activity Works With These Books
Use the materials to create a “collage face” or character
Look at the face you've created:
What is this person's name?
What is their favorite food?
Who is their best friend?
Create a story about your character - perhaps they're going to the grocery store or on vacation. Maybe he or she is starting at a new school.
