Me and 100-Year-Old Me

As part of the hundredth day celebration this week, we talked with the children about respecting and honoring elderly people. Then the children sat in front of a mirror and drew two self portraits, one of how they look now, and one of how they imagine themselves looking when they are one hundred years old. They crumpled and smoothed out the second paper to make their 100-year-old faces look wrinkled.

I like how the boys gave themselves facial hair and many of the girls gave themselves glasses. (Click the pictures for larger versions.)
