I have just found a note in DD's book bag asking her to bring in an all about me bag for tomorrow. She has to take six items that tell the class all about her.

I was thinking: family photo, favourite book, something to do with shrek, a wooden spoon (likes cooking), a shell (had fun at the beach this year) and something general to show she likes being outdoors [racks brains!!].

Anyone else doing this- what will your DC include?

That would have totally thrown me. In fact I am going to check dd's bookbag now (had relied on dp saying nothing in it!).

I think your suggestions are great - how about a pine cone/fossil/pet stone/beautiful leaf/fave stick for the outdoors thing?

We have done a shoebox - much the same thing. DD2 has included:

a family photo
a crystal (she likes them)
a little pipecleaner peacock she made (she likes craft)
a skipping rope (she likes to play outside)
a swimming medal (she's very proud of it)
a dreamcatcher (a favourite item)
a DS game (enough said....blush)

My dd did this last year - we did ballet shoes (she's dance mad), a map of ireland (where grandparents live), some barbie doll clothes, a photo of her baptism, her babygymini's badge and a hanki that granny gave her (she died the year before) and something else that has slipped my mind right now!!! What about a picture of your DD outdoors having fun??

Our Y1s have been asked to do an all about me bag. They have a small paper bag and need to put 3 things in it.

I have done mine (I even posted a thread about it smile ). Mine has:
* picture of DD and DH
* small toy suitcase - I like holidays
* a small camera - I am rarely without my SLR
