100th day of school self-portraits

today is the 100th day of school at my children's school. i came across this adorable self-portrait idea on pinterest and thought it would be a great classroom activity for my daughter's 1st grade class. her teacher agreed! we did some practice portraits at home first; one for each of my children.

what will i look like when i am 100 years old?

aren't they cute? and they are so easy.

here's what you need:

black card stock
patterned cardstock
manila folders (for faces)
white painters pen
paper doilies
cotton balls
googly eyes

i cut each piece of clothing and let the kids draw their own faces and arrange their hair

i love how each portrait had its own personality

wouldn't they look darling in a shadowbox frame and hung in a mudroom or kitchen?
