Making Faces

If you've got a stack of old magazines lying around, and an hour to spare one evening to prep (ha!), then this is a fun activity for the kids. 

You will need:
  • Old magazines
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paper with various oval shapes drawn on
The night before, I cut out lots of different eyes, noses, mouths and hair from magazine pages - the larger full page photos work best but we had a variety of sizes. 

Next I printed ovals of differing sizes (Word Autoshapes to the rescue again!) on A4 paper or you could easily draw them.

I separated the facial features into bowls so the kids could easily take which piece they wanted. 

Using the glue stick, they stuck on eyes, nose, mouth and hair to each oval shape, making a face. 

They loved doing this, and thought the results were very funny (although I thought they were slightly creepy LOL!)
