American Presidents and Kids' Profile Pictures
Abraham Lincoln on a penny
We looked at various American coins and observe the profiles of the presidents
Then we turned out the lights on one side of the room and shone a bright flashlight onto the wall. The children took turns coming over to sit in front of the wall and I would trace the shadow of their profile onto black paper with chalk.
Later we cut them out and glued them to a big coin shape.
You could also use a digital camera to take a profile pic, print it, cut out etc. and it would be more accurate, but for my purposes the chalk worked fine.
