I picked up this Create-a-Face pad
at our local toy store a few weeks ago for $5. It's perfect for portrait practice and makes for a very easy, low-prep art project. Before they got started I had the kids look closely each others faces for eye placement, proportion, and shape of features. Pencils, colored pencils, markers, stickers, colored paper, glue, buttons... just throw it all on the table and watch them create!
Peter's portrait - I love this
And here is another face I keep seeing this week.
The I've-been-sneaking-Easter-candy face with the blue-tinged lips.
At least he's honest about it. : )
Great craft idea. What a fun pad to have on standby. You could encourage them to make pictures of family members and put them in with birthday cards. We are always on the lookout for extra fun things to bulk out the letters and parcels we send overseas to the grandparents.ReplyDelete
