All you need:

A lot of people consider Pablo Picasso the founder of collage, the art of attaching different materials to a flat surface. This particular collage is a two part process.
The first step
1. First get an oversized piece of watercolor paper. It doesn’t have to be oversized, but in this case big is really fun, plus it gives you plenty of space to work and create with.
2. Get out your favorite watercolor set and enjoy some time painting all over the paper. Pick your favorite colors or go for all the colors. Let your watercolor dry completely. If you have a sunny spot nearby, this usually takes no more than ten minutes or so.
The next part is the collaging
1. You can precut images for them. Make a bunch so they have a nice amount to choose from. You can use comic books, magazines, picture books, anything your child might find interesting.
