Toddler Activities: Puffy Shape Collage

Toddler Activities: Create a collage using fabric shapes. Embellish with buttons, feathers, felt or other collage materials to create an interesting, colorful piece.

puffy shape collage DESCRIPTION

A collage is one of those projects that are wonderful for little ones because there are no rules as to how it should look, and in fact the more random the objects are placed, the more interesting it can be. I feel strongly about letting the child be the "creator" with minimal guidance


  • Loose fabric collage pieces, they come in different shapes, fabric texture and sheen. Sold at most craft stores or education supply stores.
  • Foam shapes in various colors and shapes

  • Ribbon, lace, fabric, felt (optional)

  • Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
  • Construction or Cardstock

    1. Have a selection of loose collage pieces.
    2. Let child pick one out and if child is very young, ask where he/she would like it placed.
    3. Put glue on the designated spot and let child place flower on glue..
    4. Let dry flat.


  • For a more permanent bond use Fabri-Tac. The picture shown above was made over 2 years ago.
