Let's Create!

  • This self portrait art activity is the perfect way for your child to express themselves!

  • Either print off the face image or help your child to draw an outline of a face.

  • Have your child choose materials that they would like to form an image of themself.


  • They may choose to just use only coloring utensils or add in things like yarn, pipe cleaners, pom poms 

**Another way to do this is by using outdoor materials to create a face such as small stones for eyes and leaves for hair.
