Herb Collage

Your kids will love to root through your spice cupboard to find the different colors, textures, and smells for their scented herb collage. Teach them how to make an herbal design on a piece of construction paper in this collage craft.

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Craft glue
  • Herbs and spices such as parsley flakes, cinnamon, or chili powder

Step 1: Spread one area of the construction paper with a layer of glue.

Step 2: Cover it with spices such as parsley flakes, cinnamon, and chili powder.

Step 3: Let the glue dry, then shake off the excess spices.

Step 4: Add dots and lines of glue to the design, and sprinkle on more herbs and spices. Once the glue dries, shake off the excess herbs.

Experiment with other spices and herbs to add a variety of colors and fragrances to your pictures.

With seeds, you can create art that is good enough to eat. In the next section, we'll show you how to use fruits and vegetables to create a seed collage.
