A great way to begin your All about Me unit is with a self portrait! You can grab 3 free self portrait printables here on my blog Simply Full of Delight. There’s a side profile, a round face, and an oval face.
Pick your favorite and let kids draw their self-portrait to show others how they see themselves. I love to see how kids draw their own facial features, add eye color, and different colors of hair. These always turn out so cute and make a fun bulletin board display for your All about Me theme!

This Friend Sidewalk Chalk Drawing Activity is a fun way for kids to interact with their new friends! Simply provide kids with sidewalk chalk and show them how to outline their friends.
Once each child has been outlined by a friend (or a grownup), kids can complete the details of their own outline, coloring on the hair, eyes, nose, mouth, and clothing.
I recommend having the chalk drawn friends hold hands, it’s even more adorable!

For this fun art meets snack idea, grab a bagel, a piece of toast or a sugar cookie! Spread it with your choice of topping – cream cheese, peanut butter, or icing.
Provide kids with items to create a face on their “snack portrait.”
You might use cut veggies, raisins, cut fruit, candy, fruit snacks, etc.
We chose to use a toasted bagel spread with cream cheese, blueberries, strawberries, chocolate chips, and granola.
This snack portrait idea is so much fun. Young children always love activities that they can eat!
14) Life Size Self-Portraits
Kids can create Life Size self-portraits indoors with a few simple supplies. Grab a roll of Kraft paper (or you might be able to acquire the end of a newspaper roll from a local newspaper printer).
Tape the extra large paper to the ground. Have each child lay down on their paper.
Either an adult can trace around them or another student (depending on age and artistic abilities). Once the tracing has been done, let the child color their body parts to create an extra large self portrait of themselves using the outline.
If you like, yarn can be used for hair and other craft supplies like sequins or buttons can be added as well. Such a fun, memorable All About Me art project.

It celebrates differences and is a great way to show that everyone is different but also very similar.
