collage with old mags

I found a use for some old magazines I've been hoarding : ) I cut strips, some wide and some thin and put them in a basket. Both children had a paintbrush paste and black paper and I encouraged them to choose a strip of magazine that they liked to look of. They put glue on the back of the strip or on the paper and from then I just watched. I loved listening to them talking about what pictures they found on the strips and where they were going to put them on the page. They both wanted me to cut bits up " for the little spaces" which I did. It kept them busy for nearly an hour which I was grateful for as one of them is still pretty cranky with the chicken pox.
