Adventures in shredding paper

You read that right, we were shredding paper today. 

I pulled out some old magazines and told the kids to rip out their favorite pictures so we could make a collage.  Jacob loved the ripping part, Chris got upset if he ripped any of the cars, but he eventually understood that we were gluing them and it was fine if they weren't perfect.  So shortly after giving them 3 magazines the living room was already littered with paper shreds.

After all the magazine confetti was created we pulled out a piece of poster board and a glue stick and started our collage.  Since the only magazines I had were Zoom-Zoom magazines, the collage is 100% Mazda themed, but the boys don't mind at all.  They loved it so much they tried to show it to the UPS guy.

Here is a picture of the finished product, all set to be hung up in the boys room


  1. They are so cute! And that looks like a great activity, I will have to do that with my little one sometime soon.

  2. Your boys looked like they had so much fun doing this activity. It's a good way to recycle old magazines and unused documents, Theresa. Aside from using them for decors, you can also prevent information from leaking out through trashed documents. In this case, using old magazines has turned out to be great.
