My Special Face
Adapted by Jolanda Garcia, KidsSoup Inc.

When I look in a mirror I see my face,
And all of its parts are in their place.
I see two little ears and one little nose,
I see two little eyes and one little mouth.
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?
A wonderful and special me! (Give yourself a hug!)

Draw a mirror shape on to craft paper and cut out. Cut out an oval shape out of aluminum foil and glue on the mirror. Let children decorate their mirror.
