Kindergarteners learned all about self-portraits for this fun winter project!
We began by reading The Mitten and creating colorful sparkly mittens. Students traced a mitten template onto white paper and used tissue paper, glue, and glitter to create sparkly colors.
The next week, we did a step-by-step drawing of how to make a self-portrait. Students used crayons to color in their self-portrait and then cut and glues it to a piece of construction paper.
The final week, students cut and glued their mitten to the paper and then used a cotton swab and white paint to create “snow.”
One of the classes didn’t have time to do the portrait so they just cut and glued the mitten which still turned out pretty great!
As fun as this winter-themed project was, I really can’t wait for spring!
