Fun activity to do in a group


This is a fun activity for kids of any age. We tried it with four children aged between two and four years old. It was great to do as a group as they built upon each others ideas and techniques to decorate their bodies. Older children could do more complex decoration and cut clothes out of fabric scraps

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Long roll of paper (I used a roll of craft paper from IKEA but you could also use wallpaper liner paper or the reverse side of spare wallpaper)
Thick black pen
Various colours of paint and crayons
Other decoration items e.g. scraps of coloured tissue paper, feathers, material scraps, googly eyes, feathers etc
Glue

Ready to draw


Ask the child to lie down on the paper and make a pose. Draw around the child's outline with a thick black pen or crayon being careful not to mark clothes.
