First Presentation:

  1.  “Today we are going to do some collaging.”

  2. “I dip my brush in the glue.”

  3. “Watch me spread the glue on the paper.”

  4. “Now I put a circle/paper on the glue.”

Notes: If you use a brush, make sure to wash with warm water and dish soap when finished.

You can tint the glue with a little bit of paint so your child can see where the glue is on the paper.
