Cut it out.

Summer break might be over, but summer boredom may still continue. You can adapt this activity to almost any age that is able to use scissors. I am sure you or even your kids have made a collage. Here are a few idea's to stretch the collage idea and the imagination:
Make a Christmas wish list
use only one color (do a collage of just orange cut outs or all colors)
Alphabet ( a collage for each letter including pictures)
Alphabet ( Cut out the ABC's out of the letters you find in the magazine)
shapes (how many squares can you find?)
Make an alien out of bits and pieces of pictures
A monster
Create your own animal ( this is great if you get hunting mag.)
Make a menu (Let your kids create a meal out of pictures, then serve that meal.)
You get the picture. Use your imagination and your old Magazines.
