  • Paper
  • Packing tape

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Choose a few types of professions that your child wants to learn more about.
  2. Look for pictures of people working and ask your child to draw what they see. Your child can use markers and drawing or construction paper to create the sketches.
  3. Turn the drawings into pop-up portraits, using cardboard and tempera paints. Re-draw the sketches on large pieces of cardboard.
  4. Paint the portrait with colorful temperas.
  5. After the paint dries, cut out the portrait.
  6. Cut a large triangle from another piece of cardboard. Your child will turn this into a base to make the portrait stand, or pop, up.
  7. Fold the top of the triangle down.
  8. Tape the folded part of the triangle to the back of the cardboard portrait. The flat part of the triangle should match-up to the bottom of the portrait.

Repeat these steps to create more Labor Day portraits!
