Emotional Support: Self Confidence Activity

Today we would like to share with you a Self Confidence Boosting activity that is appropriate for all ages from Polk Mentoring Alliances. 

Read up on this Self Portrait Activity that will help boost your child's confidence:

This is a good initial activity for any age level. The self-portrait can be easily and effectively executed as a sketch, drawing or painting in a wide variety of art media, such as chalk, pencil, ink, charcoal, crayon, pastel, water color or tempera. Length of the activity will be largely determined by age level and the particular medium selected.

Self-portraits may be created impromptu from memory or from mirrors. Be accepting and encouraging during your mentee‟s first try. Wait a few weeks, then try again. It is helpful if you work along with your mentee on a portrait of yourself.

Create occasions for displaying the self-portraits frequently. Birthdays and special projects provide ideal opportunities for using portraits. 

If your kiddo does this activity take a picture and submit it to dream@teenwithadream.org
