I have professed my dislike for greeting cards before and since my birthday was just a few weeks ago, I ended up receiving a large assortment of birthday cards.  So the boys and I upcycled them into some fun collages.


This activity is good for a wide variety of ages.

See!  K approves of this craft!
For babies and young toddlers, tape a piece of contact paper, sticky side up, onto a table.  Cut up a bunch of greeting cards and let your child decorate as they please.  

For toddlers and preschoolers, you could still use contact paper.  However, I wanted the boys to practice their cutting skills.  So we used cardstock (construction paper would work too), glue, and scissors.  Then the boys cut up the cards and glued them onto the cardstock.

K originally started on cardstock, but was later switched to contact paper.
So the boys transformed these cards...
