This project looks at how our facial features change with varying emotions, and how they can be easily and creatively illustrated. This project could follow a book pertaining to emotions and/or a game of charades.
- Thin cardboard or thick paper (such as watercolor)
- Circular object to trace
- A few different scrapbook papers (construction paper or other colored/patterned paper can also be used)
Step 1: Trace 2 circles on your sheet of cardboard.
Step 2: Cut out the circles.
Step 3: Draw basic facial features on the construction paper. Remember to draw on the side opposite of that which you want to show on your project. Once you cut them, trace and cut a second set.
Step 4: Experiment with showing different expressions on your faces. When you find your favorite two, attach the features using glue or another adhesive.
