Creative Fun With Build Your Wild Self Website


I really love the site Build Your Wild Self. The site allows you customize a person by using many different animal parts as you can see in the image above.

I enjoyed listening to them discuss and think through what parts they would pick and why. Here are a few of the examples…

    Thanks for sharing–my kids will love this writing activity! Anything to spark the imagination or tickle the funny bone is always a hit! Have you ever read Imogene’s Antlers by David Small? It’s about a girl that wakes up one morning to find that she has antlers–very cute story and a great literature connection.

    Love the Build Your Wild Self website. One of my Kindergarten classes created their wild self and then we saved it and the 5th grade science class developed a habitat for them. It was really cute. I will try to get a picture or two so you can see it.
