I always do a all about me in Sept, as I always seem to have a big turn around of children in the setting (dh RAF so not uncommon to have a child for less than a few months:( )

Some great ideas above.

Depending on age groups, you can get them to write/draw/cut and stick fav foods to get ideas for snacks?

Toys they like to play, what they like to do

I think www.dltk-kids.com also has some all about me things? little book style ones

Make up a little book for each child...

I am special ... add pages for -

The toys the child likes - collage from Argos catalogue

The people special in the child's life

Photos of the child pulling different mood faces

Pictures of the child's favourite TV programmes... etc

... look back on it next year and see how they have changed! :D

I did all about me last month.

I got some large pieces of paper and drew round the children and they added eyes etc. Some coloured in clothes and hair

We then wrote on the paper colour of eyes, hair, height, date of birth and then fav colour, animal, programme, food etc.

Ask the children to time how long it took for them to get to my house from theres - PD

We talked about there favourte places and things they like - CLL

They took a camera home with them to take pics of their family and pets - PSED

We goggle earth where we live for them to see and then looked at a local map of our area - KUW

We counted how many white doors, red etc in the street they live - PSRN

They drew a self portrait of themselves using a mirror - CD

Hope that helps

We had great fun with it.
