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
manila folders (for faces)
white painters pen
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?
