What this activity will develop:
Reading, art and physical skills
What you'll need:
• Construction paper
What to do:
Have kids cut out their initials from large sheets of construction paper. Then have them look in the magazines and newspapers for pictures and words that describe their hobbies, likes, family, talents, favorite school subjects, foods and travel spots.
