This project is always a no-brainer - just grab a roll of butcher paper and some markers, and then trace your kiddo for him/her to color in.
Thanks to Gracie and her love for books, we did a twist on the age-old coloring favorite, by turning the life-sized portraits into their favorite story book characters.
Annelie was hard at work, coloring in Wendy from Peter Pan.
And Gracie had to create a life-sized version of her BFF - Harry Potter.
Okay, so my daughter is very creative, with an awesome imagination... but I can't help worrying that she is going to be the 'weird girl' in school, made fun of for being a little... odd. Her paper Harry went with her EVERYWHERE for an entire week, even after he was a ripped up, stapled back together, taped up scrap of paper.
They watched movies together, they played at the table together, she even had him sitting next to her at meals and made up a bed for him to sleep on at night.
Weird... but at least she had a good time.
Harry and Wendy are no longer with us... but the good thing is, all we have to do is grab some more butcher paper and markers and we'll have another week's worth of fun.
