Activity: Body Outline Art 

I had sheets of butcher paper for the children to lay down on while an adult traced around them. The children then decorated their body outlines. Since we were talking about growing up and taking care of our bodies, I told the children that they could take a look at the outlines again in a few months and compare their size to see how much they have grown.
