Many preschool teachersbegin theyear with All About Metheme. Even though my little guy is having preschool at home, I thought it would be a great way to kick off the year. While his older siblings have begun a new school year in kindergarten, first, and third grade, we’ve been busy at the kitchen table!

Here are some great art projects perfect for an All About Me theme.

Felt faces – Toddler Approved – Have you ever tried creating pictures with felt? It’s a great medium because the pieces stick so nicely to each other, yet can easily be moved around. Visit Toddler Approved to see how they made faces out of felt pieces.

Play dough portraits– You’ll love looking at the variety of play dough faces they made at Sunhats and Wellieboots. Isn’t the pasta hair great? It’s amazing how many everyday objects work well with play dough.

Tissue paper portraits – After checking out the beautiful kindergarten portraits at Hudsonville Art Program, we paintedtissue paper scraps to paper using a mixture of glue and water. My Three drew a self-portrait with a Sharpie on a separate piece of paper. When the tissue paper was dry, we cut out the drawing and glued it to the colorful background. Don’t you love the effect?

Funny self portraits – After seeing the great work preschoolers did at Artful Artsy Amy, I knew we had to give this one a try. My kindergartner painted the background with yarn. On another day, I gave him the head cut-out to glue to his paper. He added all the details himself.

Watercolor self portraits – Inspired by The Sweeter Side of Mommyhood, I helped my Three make a self portrait. We studied his face in a mirror. Then he drew his face with a Sharpie and painted with water color. I’m just in love with this one!

    My son’s preschool teacher has asked me to help her out next week with an activity on self expression and so I really like the idea of doing an all about me snack. I like the example that you have of the project with the face made from food and so I might want to model that idea for the activity. However, I will probably use ingredients that actually go together, because I don’t think that bananas and tortillas do. Perhaps we will make tostadas and they can decorate them with taco ingredients to create their faces.
