Create a Life-Sized Poster

To make a life-sized poster of your child, use the backside of some wrapping paper you already have on hand. Trace the outline of your child's body in different poses, such as making a jump shot, throwing a ball, or swinging a bat. Color them together with markers, crayons, and colored pencils. When you're done, hang them in your child's room.
