Art / Writing

SELF-PORTRAITS

Using a mirror let the child draw themselves. Point out facial features like eyebrows and eyelashes. If they draw their whole body, add in some clothing or other accessories. Encourage your child to add more things to their pictures.

Ask your child to draw a picture of themselves each week you will be so amazed at how your

child’s drawing will change each week. You can keep the pictures each week and go back and

look at them with your child/children. Encourage them to tell you about what they have drawn.

You can encourage them to draw a picture of their family also.

 

Movement / Play

Making a paper airplane.

There are many ways to make paper airplanes. This is just a very simple 4 step instructions way to do it. Encourage your child to help ypu and ask them to fold the paper and press the paper down using the fine motor muscles. Also encourage them to hold and squeeze their airplane before the throw their airplane. One last thing encourage your child to write their name on the paper airplane.
