How To make a Personal Poster with your Child

Your rating: None
This idea is a wonderful craft because the finished product, is both satisfiying and personal. Your children will love putting together a poster, all about thieir own hobbies and interests. It can be great fun, any day of the week, but also a great activity during the school holidays.
What you'll need: 
A large piece of card
Felt tip pens and/or coloured pencils
Other personal items
Magazine cuttings
First, cut out the required size of card or wallpaper.
Find photographs, both old and new, and any other items that are personal to your child, for example, a old cinema ticket to their favourite film. Do they go to ballet? Do they go to karate? or football? What is their favourite book, or TV show? What is their favourite food, etc. The list is endless.
When they have collected all their items, begin to stick them on the card. Also, encourage your child to draw sketches of him/her self ballet dancing or playing football.
The whole project could take a couple of days, there is no rush.When everything is on the poster it is finished; have your child write their name in a corner and date it. It is now ready to be mounted on their bedroom wall, as it is, or you could go out together and choose a frame for their masterpiece.
Your child will love this creating this poster with you, it is quality time spent together.
