When I first spotted this craft idea online, the suggestion was to draw a picture and then cut into squares before gluing down to form a mosaic. It turns out Travis didn’t want to draw his own picture… but he did love making a mosaic from an existing Star Wars picture!
I drew a grid on the page he selected and Travis loved cutting along the lines until we had 30 or so small squares.
Note: It’s helpful to label these on the backside so that the mosaic comes together without frustration.
We selected green construction paper as the background and then began gluing down the squares, leaving some green showing on all sides. This is also a great lesson in counting for kindergartners. Travis loved seeing the battle droids take shape again.
At the end, we had a fun piece of mosaic artwork.
