The Color of Me!

Materials: White paper or colored construction paper that would match your childs eyes, hair and lips, magazines, scissors, glue, crayons or markers

Activity: Either cut 3 squares/rectangles out of white paper and have your child color them the same color as their hair, eyes and lips or cut the squares out of those colors of construction paper. For older children, you can have them look through the magazines for photos that match the colors of the papers or for younger children you can have pictures already cut out and they can sort them out and match them to the correct color. For older children you could also use bigger sheets of paper as they will more than likely enjoy the cutting/gluing process more than toddlers.

This would be a great project for my 4 year old. She is really getting into cutting.

What a fun and simple idea! We've been really starting to work on colors lately, so this would be perfect!
