These are a nice way to re-use brightly-coloured thin cardboard from common household packaging . . . just as Nature recycles the leaves every year. Instructions, tips, four small templates and four large templates are included. Make your empty Kleenex boxes into a pretty autumn craft!
Larger cardboard mosaics can be completed by younger children, and smaller ones by older children, teens or adults. Use your completed mosaic to decorate the cover of a notebook, make a card, as a wall hanging, or give it as a gift!
Cardboard Mosaics and other similar crafts (such as cut and paste puzzles) are excellent tools for developing fine motor skills. This in turn can improve a student’s performance in other areas such as playing a musical instrument, writing neatly, attention to detail, patience, and the ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. Go slowly and be generous with your praise – fine work takes practise and perseverance!
