Construction Paper Portraits

Kids can make this construction paper portrait using pieces of scrap paper.



  • Glue sticks
  • Construction Paper (whole pieces and scraps)
  • Scissors


  1. Cut out the an oval for the face and a rectangle for the neck and glue onto the background (I used black paper because I like the contrast).
  2. Cut pieces of paper for hair and layer over each other to create a hair-like texture.
  3. Cut out and add a shirt, decorate (optional)
  4. Add facial features including  eyes, nose, mouth, and ears
