Children LOVE pictures of themselves, don’t they?   If you’ll take photos of children and make multiple copies you’ll be able to use them for dozens of games, books, and art projects throughout the school year.

Cut out 3” squares from cardstock.  Glue two photos of each child to the squares.  Children can use these for a matching activity.  They can also place photo cards face down on the floor and try to match pairs by turning over two cards at a time.
*Write the child’s name on one square and glue their photo to the other square for more a more challenging game.

Have children sort photo cards by beginning sounds, number of syllables, alphabetical order, etc.

Puppet People
Attach photos to straws or craft sticks and use for working out problems or making up original stories.

TP People
Glue full body photos to TP rolls and use in the block center or with a puppet theater.

Flannel Friends
Attach a small piece of Velcro to the back of each photo and use with a flannel board.
*Be sure to include a picture of the teacher!
