Print this sheet, and have your child color it in, showing how they see themselves, with hair, eyes, clothes, and whatever else they want to say or show to the world!
And, the craft can be hung on the wall, or tree, displayed, even used as a pendant like a lanyard, for the child to wear, give out, or stand on a table or shelf, with the easel strut leg on the back, that pitches out, for the frame to stand.
You can have them decorate the sheets, and then you can laminate or decoupage the sheets, then cut out and assemble them yourself as a parent or teacher, or if they are old enough, 8 and up, with adult supervision, if the child can cut a straight line, use a hole puncher, and use a low temp glue gun or tape or child friendly adhesive, they can make them.
For decoupage, use Modge Podge or equal parts Elmer's glue and water (1/2 cup to 1/2 cup), with a layer of plastic wrap or butcher's paper underneath, paint over the printable, allow to dry 1 hour.
For a 2x3 inch photo or paper card stock insert(s), that you or the child can write on, any info that they want to share, as long as it fits within a 1x2" oval, 1 inch up from the bottom, centered, so that it can show through the 1x2 inch picture window on the front.
