This is one of my favorite project to do with young children. Family themed projects never fail to delight young children, because family is the most important thing in their lives. They love doing activities involving their family and this project is a chance to show who is in your family. I absolutely always love the way this project turns out.
Materials: Paper to make your house out of (I used white cardstock, but you can use construction paper or a recycled
grocery bag or any type of paper you'd like), paint/markers/crayons, sharpie, photos of people who live in your home, glue stick
Activity: You can cut a house shape out of your paper or cut a rectangle and triangle (one for the body of the house and one for the roof). Use your sharpie to write "Who Lives In My House?" at the top on the roof and to draw a door (and windows if you want- I used white paper to create window frames). Allow your child to paint or color the house. My son just did tons of paint colors, but older children might want to make it look more like their real home. Once it is dry cut out the photos of your family and put them in the windows (or create window frames using brown or white paper). Allow to dry. This is another project that I laminated, because I plan on keeping it forever so I want it to last! :)
