Open Ended Art ~ Bean Collage/Mosaic

Our bean collages/mosaics may seem kind of gross. But, I get bored doing things on paper. So I try to avoid it whenever possible. I took pizza dough and divided it into three rectangular sections. We used three kinds of canned beans.

I told the girls that they could make their bean pizza designs anyway they wanted. The twins chose to just load up their "canvases" with the beans. Brynne decided to make faces on hers.

They enjoyed doing this.

After they went to play I scooped all of the beans into the trash, added pizza sauce and shredded cheese to the dough, and the girls had their canvases for lunch.

Shannon is now hosting her Open Ended Art blog party at Growing and Learning by Leaps and Bounds. Head over there to see other fun bean collages.


  1. I love it! Did they ask where there beans went?

  2. Very creative, but why wouldn't you do pizza with beans? It might have been even more fun :)
