My three-year-old recently entered the silly face phase. You know the one. He hooks a finger on the side of each cheek, stretches his mouth wide and sticks out his tongue. He shows off his silly face everywhere we go: the grocery store, the playground, school. His one-year-old brother laughs every time. So when I saw these silly face photos on Pinterest, I knew that it would be a hit. I added it to my to-do list that very instant.
I completed the bulk of the work before my son joined me. To start, I placed some of our family photos in lamination sheets that I picked up from our local discount store. I was careful to press my finger around the edge of each photo to create a tight seal. Then I cut around the pictures leaving about a quarter of an inch border to keep the lamination seal secure.
Finally, it was my son's turn to join in the excitement. I handed over the Vis-a-Vis marker and let him begin. When he was finished, he simply used the wet sponge to wipe away his lines and then dried the top with a paper towel. In two simple steps, he was ready to create a new silly face. My hunch was correct: This activity was a huge hit in our house and I hope that it brings a few giggles to your family too.
