Materials:

Approach:

  • Prepare the small plastic baskets ahead of time with a random stack of images
  • Have each child take a collage template
  • Explain that the activity is to create a collage of the things they know & love
  • Have the children glue images on the cardstock
  • Encourage the children to use markers to decorate and add their own unique designs to their collage

Hi there. I am actually a fan of worksheets as well. I have used the questions from your worksheets for my kids to make their own worksheets. My kids were really excited, to say the least. We had fun coloring and getting to know fun things about each other. You have inspired me and I have started working on my own worksheets for kids to better accept themselves and for parents to better understand their kids’ needs. You can take a look at my worksheets here https://aliciaortego.com/all-about-me-worksheet/ . Would you be so kind to leave some feedback?
