All About Me Collage with a Twist

I was going to wait until the end of the summer to post this idea since it's a great activity for the start of the new school year.  I decided that now was the perfect time to post it.  This way you can start saving all of those magazines that you'll be reading at the beach over the next few months.

You will be reading magazines at the beach this summer, won't you?

Landlocked midwesterners are excused, but the rest of y'all are required to relax on the beach with magazines.  

Don't you just love this fun spin on the traditional "About Me Collage" and the usual profile.  Use the overhead to trace the child's profile.  (or make your life easier and use my photo trick, cut that silhouette out and then project that onto the wall...you know, because paper silhouettes don't wiggle and jiggle).

Next, cut out the profile from a large piece of black construction paper.  Have the kids make a collage about themselves onto a different piece of construction paper.  Place the cut piece over it and attach with glue.
