Cardboard Safe Space

Using our "Me Model" template you can find under the Printables tab on the Art Feeds blog (link in profile), we'll make a Me Model paper doll and then imagine the place we feel safest for our Me Model to live! Watch and learn as Miss Meg builds her safe place- her porch and front yard. Grab a box, some paper, and bring your imagination and let's get started!
