Shiny Materials Process Art Collage

My daughter loves to draw, color, and create in her own way.  So giving her materials to create with-- with no end in mind-- really appeals to her creative spirit.

Our latest process art challenge was to make a collage.  To me, a collage is a bunch of odds and ends pieced together, and that is just what Little Sis did with several shiny materials.

Process Art Collage for Kids

I searched through my craft/ school room closet for shiny materials; I came up with:

I also set out some glue, glitter {provided by craftprojectideas}, and metallic paint.

I covered a shoe box with foil to provide her with a shiny sturdy surface.  Once the materials were gathered, I let her have at it!
She chose to paint over the foil and then went to town with the glitter! 
Afterwards, I helped her glue other materials onto the foil.

She loved this activity; I think a lot of it had to do with the glitter! {Remember our much loved Glitter Bird Ornament?!}  I loved that it was all child-directed from the colors she chose to the placement of the shiny materials.
