If you are working with younger children I recommend printing up their page beforehand.
Print a photo of your child in BW to highlight the edges. Alternatively you can use carbon paper to copy your subjects onto your art page.
Trace the basic outlines and shapes that come through.
Go over your drawing with black marker. It doesn't have to be perfect, but try to close each shape.
Scan your image to your computer and copy and paste it till you have the amount desired. Or have children copy their drawing onto a paper four different times.
Start filling in the drawing with bold, bright and unusual colors. Choose different colors for each copy.
Be sure and pick one color per space and get those backgrounds colored in too.
Leaving some white makes it interesting as well.
Frame your artwork or display side by side for a fun effect!
