A while back there was this fun little book we got called Windblown by Edouard Manceau. It tells the tale of random shapes being blown about and transformed into various creatures. At the end it prods you to consider what you would do with the shapes. Good question!
For this super-simple project, all you need is scissors and a few different colors of construction paper. From there, just cut out random shapes – triangles, circles, squares, cones, squiggles, whatever you want. Then simply start arranging them into different designs. Are you laying them out to create a whole landscape? Making them all touch to create a single object? Create a story of your own to go along with it? The choice is yours.
This explores shapes, colors, patterns, loose parts, imagination. This may sound like something solely for the younger crowd, yet you’d be surprised how adults will quickly start experimenting as well. If you can look at all these odd scraps and see a vision, you might just be one of those lucky folk who can actually assemble something out of a stack of parts and unhelpful directions!
