Create another little person and try out a different pretend life
This activity involves drawing around the kids on a piece of lining paper, and then encouraging them to turn the outline into a self-portrait. The creations can then be cut out and stuck on a broom to be run around the house.
Get the child to lie down on some lining paper and then draw around them in pen.
Encourage the child to think about who they might like to be, spread out some old newspaper and get creating. Your child might want to re-imagine him or herself as a fireman, a lion or even an astronaut. Whatever inspires them, be creative with what household materials you have to hand and get decorating.
Now if you want to take the re-imagined child to a whole new life-like level then you need to cut it out, stick it on some cardboard (a flattened box is ideal) and then attach it to a broom with some brown masking tape. Done. He’s ready to join you for lunch.
