My kids love any project that allows them to use glue. Since they also love to color we created a fun project that allowed them to glue dried beans and peas to add color and design.

How We Did It

Dried Bean Mosaic Art
Start by gathering your supplies. We used dried black beans, and Green and Yellow Split peas. I put each on a paper plate for easy use. Then we used construction paper as the base but a coloring page or design would work great. Also you will need glue.
Dried Bean Mosaic Art
We started by drawing the design on the paper, both kids wanted their initial so we kept it simple and I drew the letter outline on the paper. Then they added the glue to the paper.
Dried Bean Mosaic Art
They used a small foam paint brush to help spread the glue. (totally optional but they liked it and it was a little less messy)
Dried Bean Mosaic Art
Then they stuck the dried beans and peas down, in the pattern or design they wanted. It was a good way to teach them to stay in the lines.

Then we let them dry and the kids both had some new mosaic art.
