Helping Your Child be Healthy and Fit

A Mirror of Me

Help your child frame a mirror with items that represent the things your child likes.

What you’ll need

What to do

  1. Help your child attach a small pocket mirror inside the lid of a shoebox.
  2. Have your child decorate the inside of the lid with objects that reflect special interests. Some of the decorations might include:
  3. Have your child look into the mirror to see a wonderful face and the things that make it smile!
  4. You might want to hang the framed mirror on the wall of your child’s room.

This activity recognizes the things that are important to your child and helps your child realize that an identity is based on one’s own interests.
