Back to School Portraits

Taking a picture on the first day of school is a wonderful ritual for many families.  But here's a new twist...create a back to school portrait to mark how the student looked on that first day.

Take a careful look at yourself in mirror, noticing your hair, and face.  Then begin drawing your head, adding in the eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hair and shoulders.  Are you wearing your favorite shirt?  Create a frame by gluing strips of construction paper around the edge of the paper.  Write your name on the bottom and don't forget to add the date!
