Fruit and Vegetable Self Portraits

The children in Ladybirds enjoyed making their portraits using a variety or fruit and vegetables. Before creating their pictures, the children and staff took some time to look at themselves in mirrors an spoke about what they could see! The children pointed out their facial features such as noses, two eyes and mouths! First of all, the children were able to explore using the safety knives to cut their fruit and vegetables into the right size pieces needed to make their portraits, with only needing little support from the practitioners. When they had a variety of ready fruit and vegetables they were able to pick what was needed to create their own portraits. The children used new language relating to size as well as exploring their senses by explaining what they could smell and feel! For example, the berries were soft and the noodles were sticky! Well done Ladybirds!
