Make a Self Portrait from Nature
Kids of all ages enjoy creating self-portraits. It's entertaining yet challenging to replicate one's own image in a realistic way. It's also interesting to witness how children see themselves. Want to add a unique twist to this activity? Add a little fun to the mix by having your child use nature as her palette.
Whether it's a bit of grass for hair, some colorful rocks for eyes or even a flower petal to create lips, your child will have a blast using all that nature has to offer to create her very own natural self-portrait! This activity will help your child practice her planning skills, give her an opportunity to experiment with textures, shapes and colors, and allow her to tap into her imagination.
What You Need:
- Sturdy, durable paper like oak tag or poster board paper
- Elements from nature (grass, rocks, dirt, twigs, leaves, pine cones…)
