'A Soccer Ball About Me', is a fun, first week back to school, all about me creative art activity.

This soccer ball template invites students to respond to prompts in a personal, imaginative way using doodles, mark making, graffiti style lettering and imagery.

For 2021, I have also created A Basketball About Me art and writing resource

16 Instructions/prompts on the ball template include:

  • Name, Age, Self Portrait,
  • Favorite Song, Food, Book, Sport and Color
  • Activities: Color this, take a line for a walk, draw circles, squares, triangles, lines.

This packet also includes the following:

  • 'A Ball About Me' garland for students to decorate and display.

With 2 letters per US letter size page, this will make a large welcoming banner for the new classroom or bulletin board.

For early finishers and relaxation time:

  • Make a soccer ball bookmark
  • Explore pattern, shape and color with two additional abstract soccer ball doodle worksheets.

Materials needed:

  • You will only need basic materials for this activity - good quality paper for printing, colored pencils and marker pens, string or pegs for the garland.

  • The photographed color example included in the packet uses a black ball point pen and marker pens to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to grade 4's and above.

  • The finished artworks make a fabulous eye catching group wall display and also work well laminated and suspended from the ceiling. Watch them spin!

  • They also look great as personal journal or sketchbook covers for students.

  • Ideal for use as an icebreaker activity or as an art specific lesson.

  • UK/Aus/NZ version, with 'favourite colour' spelling is included in the pack - artwork prints out on A4 too.

Here is some happy buyer feedback:

’Great back to school activity! I love that it comes with an awesome model to inspire students! They look great on our lockers too! ‘

‘The students enjoyed creating these about themselves. I even had the teachers on my team create one in order for the students to learn more about them.’

‘This really caught my eye for a back to school activity to do with my Life Skills students 9-12 high school. It is so different than what I have seen and allows students to be creative.’

‘Perfect for my soccer loving reluctant writers’
