Product Description

Looking for an ADORABLE project that's awesome for the beginning or end of the school year, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, or just for fun anytime!? Here it is! Perfect for hallway displays, gifts, or memory books. It’s just so cute... and EASY to make, for any age! I personally use this project several times per year in my classroom. :)

This product is also part of a YEAR-LONG BUNDLE that includes 11 beautiful directed drawing projects! Click here to check it out!



This purchase includes 2 files:

✅a set of 36 different, zero prep paper options (details below) and

✅a gorgeous, full color show that guides everyone step-by-step through the drawing process. You get detailed photos, clear explanations worded in ways that kids understand, tips and reassurance for artists, and loads of creative variations so all YOU have to do is flip through this show, one page at a time. Super simple to teach!

Your students will be AMAZED with what they are capable of drawing! I ADORE this project... it allows kids to impress themselves and boost their confidence as artists!

I can assure you this project is not too hard for 4-5 year olds... and it's tons of fun for all ages! I've personally used it with 4-11 year olds and they all loved it! :)

Many teachers use this project SEVERAL times per year for different occasions: start of the year, mid-year conferences, and Mother's Day are my personal favorites.


There are 22 papers for a single face.

One is blank (perfect for adding children's names or ???) and the others say:


✅Pre-Schooler or Pre-School

✅Transitional Kindergartener or Transitional Kindergarten

✅Kindergartener or Kindergarten

✅1st Grader or 1st Grade

✅2nd Grader or 2nd Grade

✅3rd Grader or 3rd Grade

✅4th Grader or 4th Grade

✅5th Grader or 5th Grade

✅6th Grader or 6th Grade



There are 14 options that include 2 faces... an adult and child sized (THIS is what you can use for Mother's Day, etc). Each includes several font options so you can choose to use the one you like best.

One is blank and the others say:


✅I love you, Mom.

✅I love you, Dad.

✅I love you!

✅Happy Mother's Day!

✅Happy Father's Day!

✅I love, you, Papa!

✅I love you, Mimi!

✅I love you, Nana!

✅I love you, Grandma!

✅I love you, Grandpa!


✅I'm thankful for you!

Also available: NEW! Mother's Day Directed Drawing The Mother's Day show that includes a few more paper options and more slides designed to specifically walk students through the process of drawing TWO faces, rather than just one. You can definitely lead them to draw two faces with this product you're currently on, but the Mother's Day one is even easier and more specific.

If you're just going for one face, like a self-portrait or a portrait of someone special alone, buy the self-portrait project you're looking at now. But if you're thinking of doing TWO faces (maybe for Mother's Day, Father's Day Grandparent's Day... your student WITH their special person), you would probably like the Mother's Day Directed Drawing better. I hope that helps! :)
