Body tracing.

IMG_0081Body Tracing.

    Sorry wasn’t sure what to call this one. This is a simple and affordable project to make as it is easy and is pretty much free to make as the basic materials can be found in your home. A good project for younger children. You could use it to talk / teach to them about their bodies and body parts if you wish. Christopher chose to turn himself into a space man and Louie became a superhero.

How to make.

    Level: Easy.

Cost: Little.

Enjoyment: The boys had Lots of fun drawing, cutting and painting. (Apart from me doing the initial drawing around them. They were left to their own devices on this project).

Time: Approx 1 hr.

You will need: 

  • A Large sheet of paper (you could use wrapping paper, wall paper sample /off cut, smaller pieces stuck together etc..).
  • Scissors.
  • A pencil.
  • Paint, pens, or pencils. (we used paint pens – where you colour then add water with a paintbrush, fairly mess free!)
  • Blue tack or masking tape.IMG_0085

To make: 

  1. Cut a large piece of paper to fit the length of your child.
  2. Stick to one of your floors with blue tack or tape.
  3. Get your child to lie on paper and trace around your child with a pencil.
  4. Decorate the traced body with paints, pens or pencils (you could stick on extras if you wish like fabric/buttons for clothes).
  5. Cut around the body.
  6. Stick on to a wall or door (we stuck ours to the boys bedroom doors).

Enjoy! emmas xxx
