Light Table Activity for Kids: Making Funny FacesTo make some funny faces of your own, all you will need are some clear overhead transparencies, some colored permanent markers, and some imagination. Oh and some scissors to cut the pieces to the appropriate sizes.
I drew a face shape, freehand of course because that's how I roll, and you can see it's kind of weirdly proportioned. Whatever. Like the boys even noticed. Then I drew some face pieces and accessories: eyes, glasses, bow, mustaches, mouths, hair, etc. Draw whatever you'd like. Make it fun, colorful,and most importantly, goofy. There may be a pig snout nose in my collection...
I assembled some funny faces ahead of time for the boys to check out, which made them giggle hysterically. And honestly, I giggle every time I look at the picture below. I think it's the mouth that does it.
Then J started making some faces of his own. I particularly like how he is putting a mustache on the chin and that the nose is upside down. Insert giggles from me. Yes, I am a child at heart and things like this amuse me.
But the plump red lips just didn't work with what J had in mind. So bucktooth smile it is. Oh and some red glasses look pretty fine dandy too!
Now to pick out some hair...what will he choose?
Nope, no hair. Bald it is. Looks great, doesn't it? As for K, he enjoyed giggling while J assembled some funny facial masterpieces.
