Daily items around the house that represent your child


  1. Talk about things that describe us: hobbies, favorite food/color/song/movie, etc.

  2. Once you have a list for each family member, think together about items that could represent your portraits. For example, something pink for your favorite color, dry pasta for your favorite food, a paintbrush for art, or a small ball and goggles if needed, for your favorite sport. Find as many items as possible.

  3. The items will become a part of your art project so choose items that are not in use..
