Everyone loves a little cartoon and animated fun! And it is always fun when something special becomes available for all of us to use with our students and within education.
This time it is a special free digital tool to celebrate The Peanuts Movie that opens soon.
I have used Build Your Wild Self with students to create, inspire creativity and writing, and to create wonderful digital projects focused around literature and other topics.
One year the kindergarteners and I used Build Your Wild Self when we were studying Eric Carle books to create themselves "all mixed up". We used their creations in a collaborative Little Bird Tale digital story.
And how about a project and study of the art work of Charles Schultz and other cartoonists? They would love this!
The Peanuts website is super cool too! It is filled with so many things that would be fun to use along with a project.
It would be fun to see the characters made out of clay or other materials and use a stop motion app to create a video.
I wanted to include one more place to go to create cartoon looking images of your own.
With these Themes, you can take a photograph or anything you find or upload into the PicMonkey editor and add effects.
I added the Posterize Theme to this one of Hagan and I.
This time of year you will find Halloween and Christmas Themes (check out how you can turn yourself into Santa or a Witch),
Have fun trying these out and please share any that you love using too!
