Collage Self Portraits

Clear out your supply closet and make collage self portraits! Cut body shapes out of the desired color of tagboard, or use precut body shapes as pictured here. Every supply closet has odds and ends that you never quite know what to do with.

Combine all your leftovers on collage trays and provide scissors and glue. If you don’t have pre-printed collage papers like those pictured here, make your own collage paper with paint, scrapers and other texture tools. Children will enjoy this project while practicing decision making, problem solving and stretching their imaginations. This particular sample was made by a teacher in San Diego who enjoyed it too!

  1. These collage self-portraits brought back an amazing 45 year old memory of sitting in a new fourth grade class with a wonderful compassionate teacher. I don’t remember anything specifically that she taught that year, but I still have the tagboard collage portrait (with my own school picture face pasted on.) Though the collage is too fragile to handle, the memory is still strong, and sweet.
