Supplies needed:

  • Coloured paper, 1- ½ sheets (could be white) and 3 different colours of 8 ½ x 11 for each student
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue or Glue stick


Students will write their name on ½ sheet of paper using a dark marker, printing or cursive. Tell the student that they use a line to write their name. (Line is a path of a point). Draw a contour line (contour line-a line around an object) around their name, leaving about a ½ inch between the name and the line is drawn. Cut out the name. Their name is now a Shape (Shape is a 2-dimensional enclosed space, a line turns into a shape when the lines meet or intersect. Shapes can be geometric or free form).

Place the name on the next colour choice and draw a contour line around it, leaving a ½ inch between the paper edge and the line drawn. Cut out. Do the same for the next two colours.

Glue shapes together with glue sticks or glue. These can be used on desks for personalized nameplates. This can be done with more than three colours. They look great large!

Fabulous when laminated!
