Have kids draw themselves on little circles on the first day. Copy them and cut them to paste around a new page. Use it for a newsletter template. What a fantastic Idea! That would look so great for class announcements etc.
Give each student a puzzle piece to decorate... keeping the edges intact so it can be re-assembled. Use for a lesson in tolerance... how each individual piece is beautiful on its own. But what a masterpiece you get when you put them all together!
