To create our sculptures, we used torn out magazine pages, a stapler, transparent tape, and a pencil or marker. Staplers and transparent tape are my daughters favorite materials to work with. I think these materials are so empowering for a child and if you have never left your children use these....please do!
As an art teacher, I would see kids using staplers and tape and they could never get enough....it was like they had some sort of deprivation of these materials!
For our sculptures, we basically followed these steps: Roll up the magazine into a tube.
Flatten and staple or tape the tube.
Then curl the ends with a pencil or marker (like our Paper Candy Canes).
Here is C hard at work curling.
We simply stapled and taped the pieces together and twisted and turned them whichever way we chose. It was good to start out with some sort of circular base and build onto it. It reminded me of our Paper Strip Sculptures!!!
Here are our Magazine sculptures! I'm really Happy with the way they turned out!
Cassie even created this collage out of magazine pages too!
