cornucopia collage DESCRIPTION

Great beginning paint and collage style activity for toddlers as early as two years of age.


  • Construction paper in brown, red, orange, yellow, and purple
  • Glue stick
  • White Paper (construction, scrapbook, cardstock for background)
  • Glitter Paint in a sheer color
  • Paint Brush (wide is easier for young toddlers)

    1. Select colors to be used and cut out shapes of fruit. Have the real fruit handy if possible to talk about it as you make shapes for your child.
    2. Cut out the Cornucopia.

    3. Have your child use glue stick to glue on the cornucopia first and then the cut out fruits.

    4. Paint with brush over picture


  • If you prefer a pattern instead of cutting it freehand, type "free printable cornucopia or fruit" in google and you can find a number of pictures you can use as patterns.

    Fall Leaves

    Fall leaves Collage Cut out leaf shapes and draw a simple trunk on the paper. Have your child glue on the leaves. Using the sheer glitter paint tpadd some sparkle to the picture.


  • Painting and gluing is a great way to help develop fine motor skills as well as a great visual way to reinforce color recognition.
