Look What We Made...

I had so much fun with my new kiddos during my first 3 days of school. We did so many fun activities and projects during our first week. At the beginning of each year, I have my kiddos draw Self Portraits. For an added touch this year, I had my kiddos make their very own frames to accent their portraits. 

Here's how we made them...

On the first day I had my students each pick one piece of construction paper. After school I cut the paper to be 8 1/2 x 11 and copied the following on to each.

The next day we made the frames. 
I had my kiddos fold their papers in half, like so....

...and cut out the middle rectangle.

Then they folded them to make an 'L' shape. 

From there, they cut their own design around the edges.

And voile!!!

Last, they added them to their Self Portraits. 

Don't they look beautiful???
