Make these easy, educational, and 100% frame-worthy mod art project with kids. It will leave you saying, “Wow… the kids really made that?!”


  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • paintbrushes
  • small shallow container
  • scissors
  • colorful card stock paper
  • paper for background of your art
  • picture frame


    1. gm2Distribute a small amount of Mod Podge into the shallow container. Cut your card stock into small geometric shapes.

    2. Using a paintbrush, spread some Mod Podge onto your paper and stick on your shapes.

    3. gm3Paint a layer of Mod Podge on top of your pasted-on shapes. The layer on top is the trick to this project. If you layer on a good coat, it will smooth down the edges of the shapes that may be sticking up and leave the artwork with a great finished look.

    4. Allow your work to dry overnight and then find a frame that fits so you can frame your artwork!gm4
