- Large sheet of butcher or brown paper
- Crayons or paints
- Black felt marker
- Scissors (optional)
Have your child lie down on the paper in any shapes she wants. Trace around the body with a felt marker. Have your child take over and draw her own features and clothes on the outline. It can be what she is actually wearing, or what she would like to be dressed in a Halloween costume, for instance. The outline can be cut out or left on the large sheet and then hung up.
