Net Scape is a craft project that encourages kids to use the Internet to express their creative side. Why not surf the Internet for a few interesting images and turn those discoveries into art?

How to Make Net Scape:

What You'll Need:

  • Computer with Internet Access
  • Printer
  • Blank Paper
  • White Glue
  • Pen

Step One: Go to your favorite Internet search engine. Type in a fun topic (a name, a band you like, a country in Asia, a flavor of ice cream), and see what comes into view.

Step Two: If you find a picture, statement, or logo that really makes you smile, print it out and set it aside.

Step Three: Once you get 4 or 5 great printouts, turn them into an expressive cyber collage. Be sure to date the back of the page and put it in a safe place. Pull it out in weeks or years to enjoy it all over again.
