Mini Me's Poster People

Poster People are a perfect fit for my Open House every year.  I send home an outline on tagboard of a head, torso, and arms with each students to create their own mini me.  I encourage them to make their person resemble themselves as much as possible and it is absolutely amazing to see each student's uniqueness come out in this project.  And best yet...the night of Open House you'll have the quietest, cutest class sitting at their desks ready to learn!  What more can I say?

  4. I use masking tape to stick them to the chairs. Sometimes I need to use a ruler to support the heads.

  6. I have an open house this week and these would be a hoot. I have some old card board boxes that might work perfectly. I have a vision of what it'll look like. Now to make it reality.
