Materials

  • Dark-green cloth background
  • White border, edged with orange marker
  • White letters, edged with orange marker

Instructions

  1. Using the boy pattern, make the boy, hand, and question mark. Color as desired. Tape the hand lightly in place.
  2. Ask the children to tell about a favorite place where they like to go: a comfortable room or chair, the library, a friend's house, or their grandparents' house; or an outdoor place such as a porch swing, pool, ballpark, tree house, or fishing spot.
  3. Give each child a piece of paper. Let them draw themselves in their favorite place, doing what they enjoy most. Outline each scene with orange marker.
  4. If the children can write, let them write about their favorite place and draw a picture of it.
