Unplugged Project ~ People

Emily and Juliette's People Tracings
This weeks Unplugged Project theme is "People". Emily loves having her hands traced so I thought she would think it was fun to trace Juliette. It would also be a fun project for us to save and remember how tiny she was. It also turned out that yesterday when we did the project Juliette was exactly 7 weeks old!!

I laid Juliette down on a long piece of drawing paper and traced around her.
Emily is helping her arm stay in the right place in this picture.

Emily was able to draw her face and color in her outfit.

She did a great job on the face...but it didn't show up in the photo.

I traced the pencil outline in marker so we could see it better. Emily actually enjoyed coloring her in!

Now it was Emily's turn!
After I hung up the picture of Juliette I thought we needed one of Emily so we could see the size difference.

Emily colored in her body and drew her face. I also worked with her to label some of the different parts of the body. (Head, Fingers, Legs, Feet, Belly)

Look at that face! Emily was so proud of her work. I love how they look on the wall. These will be such a great memory of how little my girls were :0)

We did this recently and it was a lot of fun. My kids loved looking at books about the human body and trying to fill in their outlines. I LOVE that Juliette was involved! So cute!

We used to do this project at school with all the children. It is so neat to see all the different levels of the children with their drawing ability.

What a neat idea - it's amazing to see a difference between an infant and a 3 year old, and what a great memory for the future!

This is such a cute idea, I remember doing it in school but I forgot all about it. I don't think my daughter is at the right age for it. I should have done it when she was too young to get away. And she is too young now to stay still long enough for me to trace her. I'm going to file it away in my brain for later. Thanks, btw cute kids!
