Portrait of Dad using Plasticine (Preschool Art)

My preschoolers recently produced these fab portraits of Dad for Father's Day.

So easy to do and I'm just loving them.  It was also great for their fine motor skills to break up and squash in the plasticine.

What you need:
  • Printout of head
  • Black permanent marker
  • Laminator
  • Different Coloured Plasticine
  • Pipecleaners
  • Beads

How To:
I laminated the printouts of the head (prior to lesson), then gave each child one of these.  I first instructed them to add to the printout using the black marker, adding eyes, nose etc.  Then they "coloured in" their portrait by adding small pieces of plasticine and squashing it into to sheet.
As a final step each child threaded beads onto a pipe cleaner and we hole punched the top and threaded it through as a hanger.

The Results:
How cute are they!

Well done preschoolers!
