Annual Self Portrait
Binder, sheet protectors, paper, and markers, crayons, paints or colored pencils
This simple arts and craft activity is not only fun for your child but also provides you with a keepsake. Put out some art supplies such as crayons and markers and a sheet of white paper, and ask your child to draw a picture of herself. When she's done, make a note of the date and your child's age on the back. Have her do this periodically, such as every year on her birthday, and make them into a simple book by placing them in sheet protectors and putting them in a binder. It will be fun to see how her art skills improve over time.
