Apple Collage

Ben is learning how to glue.  It’s a process.  He first needs to learn what glue is.  That if he places an item in glue-to leave it and it will stick.  After that I will teach to make glue dots so his work wont get messy.  For now though, it’s “Put the pompom down and leave it.”  I had these red and white gingham paper plates leftover from a bbq I hosted, I picked them up at the Dollar Tree in July.  I cut out an apple shape,  also a black rectangle and a green leaf from construction paper. I used hot glue to attach the stem and leaf quickly and in front of Ben made those small glue dots aforementioned.  Ben placed red pompoms down in the glue.  At first he lifted them up, but I showed him to leave the pompom in the glue and get another from the bag.  He was done in 5 minutes, so we made another one.  I have them flanking my entryway table and I absolutely love them!fullsizerender-3
