Your child can transform a photograph into an all-natural work of art. 1. Take a full-body photo of your child in front of a fairly plain background. 2. Print out the photo as large as you can. Ours is 8 1/2 by 11 inches. 3. With your child, collect natural items from your yard, such as bark, leaves, twigs, and flowers. 4. Arrange the objects on the photo. There's no need to glue them. 5. Take a photo of the new, collaged image and frame it.
