Border It Your Way

In this activity, children make decorative borders for the walls of their room.

Materials

  • Drawn pictures or magazines
  • Scissors
  • Wallpaper paste
  • Old paintbrush
Directions

A border is a line of pictures pasted to the very top of the walls around the entire room.

  1. Collect pictures you draw or look through magazines you like for appropriate pictures.
  2. When you have enough pictures, mix up the wallpaper paste and brush it a little at a time where the border will be.
  3. Put one picture on at a time, gently rubbing over the picture with a clean cloth.
  4. If you get tired of this border, simply border over the top of it in the same way.
