Almost Anything Goes in a Collage
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Snip, snip. Squish, glue. Making a collage is fun to do! A collage is when you attach things onto a surface. You have probably done a collage.
 
2     People have made collages for a long time. The first ones were made in Japan. Writers made collages in the 12th century. Today, children's books have collages in them. Eric Carle used bits of colored paper to make his pictures. You may have read his books. One is called The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
 
3     The word collage came from a French word. It meant "to stick." That is because the pictures or items in a collage have to stick on to something else. Collages can be made of many things. Flat collages are often made from paper. You can use pictures. You can use postcards. You can glue them on a piece of paper. Relief collages are 3D. Things stick out from them. You can use cardboard. You can use buttons. You can use cloth. You could chew a lot of bubble gum and make a collage out of gum wrappers!
