If you are in the area or plan to be, check out the Dali museum and their lesson plans before you go. I would love to do that with my kids, they are museum hounds.
I picked up a used copy of Imagine That that covers Surreal artists like Dali, Ernst and Kahlo. Besides a short biography it also gives you 2 art ideas for each artist. I love that because even if one craft doesn't work for you, the other might. So you don't have to skip that artist just because you can't do that craft. I also used a Salvador Dali book so the kids could see what his other art looked like since there was only 1 picture in Imagine That.
My kids loved this craft. Loved. They had so much fun and were laughing the whole time. Its a fairly easy project. You just need magazines, paper, scissors and glue. And your imagination.
