Children are all special and they need to be reminded of that.
An “All about Me” theme is the perfect way to teach children they are each unique and important.
Have the children draw self-portraits and frame them in a cardboard frame that says “I am Special”. They can use crayons, markers, or any art supplies on hand.
Help the children see that they have a history by creating a family tree. This project will need to be started at school, but sent home for mom and dad to complete.
Or have mom and dad send in pictures so you can help the children complete this family tree at school.
Have each child bring in a baby picture and make a collage of them.
I am Special Poster
Using a piece of poster board, make an “I am Special” poster. Glue the child’s name on the page, and pictures. Add their hand print in paint, and add drawings or photos of the child’s favorite things.
Of course, in a Christian setting, you could add “God Loves Me”.
