Recipe for Fun!

Choose category pairs, like light and dark, inside and outside, food and drinks, happy and sad, big and little, or boys and girls. Then have kids search the magazines and catalogues for pictures in each category pair. When they have at least three to five for each category, sort the pictures and glue them to the construction paper.
