Audrey Penn - ART On a large piece of construction paper each child makes a red handprint with paint (handprint goes at the top). As the handprints dry I have the children draw a family portrait on a smaller piece of paper. If time allows, I always like to have the kids bring their portraits to the carpet and share at least one thing about their drawing.
