This art project for kids turns photos into a simple and fun boredom buster!
We’re still adjusting to life with a newborn, and the other day I needed an easy way to keep everyone busy. While Janie was asleep, I took photos of each of the boys making silly faces. I printed their favorite shots on our laser printer (so, only in black and white). Then while I was feeding her, they turned their photos into works of art!
- Photos of your kids faces. Have them make all sorts of different expressions!
- Markers, colored pencils, etc.
- Glue sticks
- Collage materials – construction paper, foil (for a robot? or a superhero?), felt, fabric, scrap book paper
The boys had fun turning themselves into all sorts of creatures! Here is Gresham as a parakeet:
And Aidan as a superhero:
For some of the pictures, the boys simply drew their designs. Aidan used construction paper to make a collage style picture of himself as a skateboarder.
This one of Gresham as a dragon cracks me up. I think he really sees himself this way! So funny.
Be sure to add this idea to your summer boredom buster list, and if you need more ideas, check out my Pinterest boards! I’ll be pinning fun activities for kids all summer!
