Silhouette Self-Portraits

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

In this art activity, a preschool child fills in the details on his silhouette.


Materials

  • Very large sheet of newsprint or other paper
  • Markers, crayons, or paint

Directions

  1. Have your child lie down on the floor on the paper.
  2. Trace around her, then let her fill in the details with markers, crayons, or paint.
  3. Tell her to be as detailed as possible: What is her hair like? What color are her eyes? What clothes is she wearing?
  4. When finished, hang her portrait in her room or on her door where she can admire it.
