Body Tracing

Ask your child to lay on their back on a large sheet of paper. Trace around their body and have them stand up. Give them some markers and ask them to create a self portrait on top of the tracing. Have them observe their own characteristics. What color is their hair? What color are their eyes? What clothes are they wearing?
