Reflections on Leadership

What you need:

  • Large chart paper to trace your child's body
  • Markers and/or crayons
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Magazines or printed pictures

What you do:

  1. Ask your child, "When you think of a positive leader, who do you think of?"
  2. Ask, "What makes them a positive leader?"
  3. Ask, "In what ways do you see yourself as a leader?"
  4. Ask, "What gifts and talents do you have?"
  5. Explain that today they will be creating a "This is Me!" collage that reflects all of the things that make them who they are—their gifts, talents, interests, and leadership skills. Emphasize that strong leaders take time to reflect on their gifts, talents, and leadership skills!
  6. On a large piece of chart paper, help your child either trace their body or draw an outline of a body on paper.
  7. Have your child write their name at the top of the paper, along with the heading "This is Me!"
  8. Have your child look through magazines or printed images and cut out pictures or words that reflect their interests and talents.
  9. Support your child in gluing these images on the paper inside of the body lines.
  10. Your child can also use markers and draw pictures of their interests.
  11. At the bottom of the paper, have your child write (or dictate to you if need be) 3–4 sentences on what makes them a leader and how they would like to serve and help others.
  12. Have your child share their "This is Me!" poster and what they learned about themselves with the rest of your family and hang it in a prominent place!
