Collage Robots

19

Let’s face it… Every kid loves robots. Especially now-a-days! Seems like every student I have wants some kind of robot for Christmas! This project is fun and oh so cute. I love teaching lessons that allow kids’ imaginations to run wild and involve mixed media.

What you need:

  • Scraps of construction paper
  • 9×12″ sheets of construction paper
  • Glue Sticks
  • Elmer’s glue bottles
  • Skinny Sharpies
  • Scissors
  • Bins of random objects: Seaquins, buttons, nuts & bolts, beads, whatever you can find!

 

Let’s get started!

 
I begin class by building a robot. I sit in my chair with my little students at my feet and I ask, “What shape should I use for a body?…What shape for a head? What are some things robots might have?” I end up adding wheels, tubes, pressure gauges, clocks, buttons whatever the kids suggest! I give everyone a piece of construction paper to build their robot. Then I set them free to create their own. Have fun!
