How to make a paper mosaic
Paper mosaics are easy and fun to make, and you probably already have everything you need. You’ll first need a larger piece of paper to cover with smaller pieces of paper. Then, you’ll cut colorful pieces of paper into small squares, rectangles, diamonds, or any shape you like and glue them to create a beautiful pattern or decoration. The possibilities are endless.
We use this type of colorful paper (affiliate link), but of course, others will work just fine.
You can create your own design or if you’d like some ideas to work from, I have created 10 free, printable mosaic templates that can be found at the end of this post.
In addition to learning about mosaics, this is a great activity for kids to work on fine motor skills, cutting, and pasting.
Tips and Tricks for Paper Mosaics with Kids
After completing this project, I’ve learned a few tips and tricks.
- Smaller mosaic pieces allow for more detail. I suggest using smaller pieces on the more intricate template designs, like the dinosaur and bird.
- Larger mosaic pieces make for a quicker project. For smaller kids that may not have long attention spans, I suggest using bigger pieces of paper. They will be able to cover more surface area in less time and won’t get frustrated. Bigger pieces are also a little easier for smaller hands to grasp.
- Creating a border with color is an easy way to give the project a finished look.
