Collage of Yourself


  • Small front facing headshot of child printed out

  • Magazines (National Geographic works really well)

  • Scissors

  • Glue


  1. For this project, the kids cut out their heads from the photo. Then they searched through the magazines to find legs, arms, tails, whatever body parts they wanted to make. Have kids cut out their heads from the photo. 
  2. Have kids search through magazines to find and cut out:

    • A full page to use as a backdrop

    • Body parts

    • Other things they wanted to add to the background

  3. Put the collage together and glue. 


  • Encourage the kids to be creative with this project - some of the more interesting finished projects didn’t use animal or human parts for bodies but parts of plants or machinery.
