Ripped paper art project

I saw this ripped paper art project over at Junk In Their Trunk. Since we already had all of the supplies needed, we decided to do it today. :)

To do this project, all you need is some colored paper, glue, a sheet of white paper, and a pen.

These are the colors of paper we used..

I had the girls rip up all of the paper. They had a good time doing this step. :)

Don’t all of the colors look so pretty together?

Next you draw your child’s name on a large piece of paper (we used graph paper).
I forgot to take a picture of this step.. Woops!

Then you just put some glue on each letter (one at a time so the glue doesn’t dry up before your child gets to it) and let them put the colored pieces on the glue to form the letter. :)

We have a lot of ripped up paper left over, so I think we will be making a few more projects. :) The girls still wanted to do more today, but we ran out of glue.. Boo!

Have you done any fun and easy art projects with your kids recently? I’d love to hear about it!


  1. This is such a great and simple idea! With all that pretty, colorful paper the results would always turn out terrific! :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. What an easy, fun project. I'll definitely have to keep this in mind for my own kids.
