Create a Portrait
Valentine’s Day is best spent by spending time with the special people in your life, and showing them how much you care. Express the love that you and your child share by creating "me and you" portraits together! This fun activity is sure to create lasting memories as you two spend valuable time together.
This Valentine's Day portrait project will encourage your child to build skills in multiple areas: self-concept development, math (shape recognition and symmetry), art (color, line, pattern, and texture), and creative problem solving skills. So, take a good look at each other, and begin this portrait art adventure!
What You Need:
