Self portraits are such a great way for kids to explore their sense of self as well their creativity. But younger children might find the idea of drawing a whole picture of themselves a little daunting - so this version is great as half the face is already there. We picked a photo, cut it in half and printed it out. Then drew back in the missing half for a wacky self portrait. You can also ask kids to surround the image with pictures of their thoughts and imagination which is a great way to talk about feelings and any worries they might have.
