Activity: Make a state collage

The museum’s summer feature exhibit, WEEBLES Coast to Coast takes visitors on a road trip through all 50 states. Discuss with your children all of the states that they have visited. Which state is their favorite? Celebrate these states together by creating a collage of what makes that state so special. For example, a collage of Florida could have images of palm trees, beaches, oranges, sand castles, and more.  

Directions:
1. Choose the state you want to use in your collage.
2. Look through old magazines for pictures that represent things that make you think of that state.
3. Use child safe scissors to cut out pictures.
4. Glue pictures to a poster (you could trace the shape of the state you chose and fill it in with the pictures).
5. Hang up and enjoy!
