Self Portrait Collage

Collages are great craft activites for small kids but here is a different twist - a self portrait collage. For the paper you will need to source some newsprint, or something of an equivalent size.

You will need:

  • Paper - slightly larger than your child
  • Felts/crayons or pencils
  • Glue
  • Pieces of material and wool or string
Get the child to lie on the piece of paper and draw around him/her. Now get the child to do a self portrait by filling in the outline. Wool or string could be used for hair, material could be glued on for clothes, or just coloured in. You could stick on buttons for eyes (and as buttons!)
