Project #183: Funny Family Portrait DIY
Do you have a big sister or a little brother? Does anyone in your family have a moustache?
Today we’re going to make a fun family portrait collage using a bunch of colourful paper shapes and some imagination. Don’t be offended mamas and papas, you don’t really have square noses and triangle eyes!
What you will need:
* Colourful paper
* A pair of scissors
* Glue stick/glue
* a plain sheet of paper
* A marker
* A ruler
Cut out lots of different paper shapes. The more you cut out, the more fun you will have constructing funny faces.
Take your plain sheet of paper and draw a frame. Use the ruler to make straight lines.
Cut out face shapes (circle, oval or maybe even square?). You will need a face shape for each member of your family. Once you have your face shapes, start playing around with mini shapes and constructing different kinds of faces.
To make this activity more fun, don’t glue your shapes straight away, take your time to discuss facial features and what is different/similar about them in different people (papa has a big nose, little sister has bushy eyebrows, etc).
Once you’ve constructed your funny family portrait, go ahead and glue all the details together. And now lets add the last touches with the marker!
Show your portrait to all the family members and have a laugh together! - Yuliya
