Self portrait project for the kids

Recently I saw an article about children doing self portraits, so I decided that we should give it a try. The children had more fun just looking at themselves than they did actually drawing themselves.

They discovered what color their eyes were, the shape of their ears, the color of their hair and much more. These are details we don't usually take the time out to explore about ourselves.

So as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words... Enjoy!

The self portraits were a hit and you don't have to homeschool to do this. It was a simple activity that just took ten to fifteen minutes to do. We have done this about three times already and they still enjoy it. We use colored pencils for a cleaner look and the mirrors were just a dollar a piece from the local dollar store.

I love visiting websites that share ideas for the children. This is the website we get many ideas from, hope you enjoy it also. Click on the link below. 

Join us tomorrow as we head to Delaware, our second state.
