For our all about me theme, I wanted to plan crafts that centered around my kids, but also discussed the differences between people. This was the perfect way to introduce the topic.
Not only was this art activity perfect for my preschooler, my toddler enjoyed it as well! We used a roll of bulletin board paper to outline my son, and then I let the kids go wild with crayons.
It gave us the perfect opportunity to talk about hair color, skin color, eye color, and so on. My toddler wasn’t keen on laying down for her outline, so instead we talked about what his sister’s self-portrait would have looked like.
