Last week in Kids Club we made self-portraits! Below each we included a box where the kids could practice writing or identifying the letters in their name and then pick one thing that they like. For the kiddos who have stronger language skills we were able to ask them "What do you like?" or "What do you like to play with?" and for the kiddos who aren't quite there yet we had the staff identify one highly preferred thing. The kids got to reflect on their physical appearance by selecting hair and skin colour and then adding on eyes, nose, and a mouth. Most of our faces came out happy, a couple were undecided or sad, but all of them were beautiful!

This week we are making collage faces that show different emotions. We have prepped eyes, noses, and mouths for happy, sad, mad, and surprised faces. The kids get to build each face and practice making expressions themselves while they glue and piece together the pictures.
