These were so much fun to make!

We have been doing a unit study on George Washington, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights lately. For art were suppose to make silhouettes.
-Now, I skip a lot of the projects recommended in this curriculum but this was something we've never tried before and it turned out to be SO worth it. We had the best time.
It was wild, crazy and nerve wracking but worth it. : )
Come to think of it, a lot of home schooling is like that! lol

I ended up doing all the kids. Here are a couple of them:

Don't they look just like them?! : )

This led to lots of discussion on who in the family has whose nose. ~I don't think any of the kids have my nose and I told them to be grateful. ; )
A certain somebody got really tired of the nose discussion and couldn't wait for school to end.

Here is how we did it:
Tape a piece of white construction paper to a wall and have someone shine a flash light on it from across the room. (use a really dark room) Then have someone draw the outline of their shadow on the paper. Tape your white sheet to a black one that is underneath it and cut it out. Throw the white one away and frame the black one!
Great keepsakes!
