Hodgepodge Boxes with Mod Podge

Yesterday we needed an indoor activity to fill our morning, so I pulled out some boxes, collage materials, paint brushes and modge podge.

Sophie made a flower box for her grandmother in New Hampshire with pictures from a nursery catalogue and some strips of colored paper. She used modge podge as the glue and then covered it with another layer for gloss.

I used some tissue paper printed with dragonflies, torn into strips and layered on a necklace box.

This great thrifted balsa wood box came from a bakery; it will go into the long-range planning section of our storage room. The next time we get an invite to a birthday party, we’ll fill it with miscellaneous art supplies and give it away.

    Fun! Do you mind (I mean, would Owen mind) if I link to your post in the next couple of days? I’ve had in mind to offer some ideas for kid-friendly art projects.
