Collage boxes are containers for storing all those odds and ends that are perfect for creating collages. As you find scraps of lace, buttons, even pieces of foil or drinking straws, place them in your collage box. Then, the next time you have a shoebox lid or styrofoam meat tray suitable for being the base of the collage, gather your children together and place glue, scissors, and the collage box on the table. You'll see your children's imaginations at work, as they combine the various contents into a one-of-kind masterpiece. Here's one last hint. Before you place the art supplies on the work table, spread a few layers of newspaper over its surface. This will make messy glue spills a breeze to clean up.
