‘Underwater Collage’ by Julie Anna Douglas. Why not download the worksheet that accompanies this poem? Or get out your paints or pencils and some paper and make your own Underwater Collage?
Make your own collage fish.
You will need: Scissor, different types of paper, glue, pencil, pen, paint.
If you only have plain paper you can paint it with splashes and blobs of paint.
Cut out the fishes body shapes from patterned or coloured paper. Cut out tail fin shapes from a different colour paper or tissue paper.
Glue the body shape to a background piece of paper. Draw or stick on fins. Draw the fishes faces with pencil or pen.
Colour the face and fins with paint, coloured pencils or felt tip pens.
Create a sea full of colourful fish using as many different colours and papers as you can find.
What other colourful sea creatures could you make using collage?
