Craft a New You

  1. First, start by cutting out the a outline of yourself like the one pictured above. Use construction paper if available to make your outline stand out!
  2. Next, cut out pictures in magazines, newspapers, old books, print, or draw your own pictures from online to show your favorite sports, foods, pets, books, hobbies, etc. Be creative – these should be things that make you unique!
  3. What is your favorite picture on your New You? Write a short explanation on the back of your completed project about why this is your favorite picture and why it makes you unique. 
  4. Finally, hang up your New You somewhere around your house to remind you each and everyday that you are unique and special!
