Preschool: "My Favorites" Project

During the first month of preschool, we focus on learning about and appreciating our differences and uniqueness. We learn about ourselves, our friends, our families. As a "getting to know you" project, I send this take home project home with my students. When they come back completed, we spend the last 10 minutes of the day allowing students to present their project to the class until everyone has taken their turn. This is a great way for the class to get to know each other and a great bonding experience while they work on the project at home with family members.

Provide each child with a paper cut out of a person. I included t-shirts as well. Instructions were included to decorate the cut out with the child's favorite things.

Here are some of the projects from last year.  I love how unique each one is. Just like each child!


  1. What a very cute idea. I'm pinning this so I don't forget. Thanks so much for sharing. Feel free to check us out at

  2. Cute idea! Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a great idea!! It looks like so much fun! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!

  4. How did you pick color for students t-shirts? Just blue for boys and pink for girls or just let them pick?:)

  5. did you find a template of children online to print?

  6. Do you have templates for this project? For the person and the t-shirt?

    1. I purchased these at a store that went out of business. I now order something similar from discount school supply. No shirts though.
