Dream It! — “Create a Critter” and “Rippling” Printable Activities

Dream It! Draw It! Think It! Do It! delivers wonderfully unexpected and entertaining creative adventures that flex kids’ mind muscles and propel them into action. In this free printable activity, you’ll find two sheets of imagination-engaging fun. On one side, a “create a critter” drawing challenge perfect for pepping up an afternoon at home! Just go into the kitchen, choose your favorite gadget, trace around its shape, and turn it into a friendly critter.  Then flip the page to keep creativity “rippling” by extending a design to the very edges of the page. Color it in and share with a friend to keep the “ripples” going!

Other activities from the book include a “boomerang” feature that encourages acts of kindness (because “what goes around comes around”), scavenger hunts for various settings, and poetry slams. Nods to German, French, and Spanish phrases are just a few ways this book aims to stretch readers’ vocabularies and intellects, even as it stays committed to off-kilter creative fun.

Author and Thinker Upper Courtney Watkins empowers kids to see their world in new and different ways.

Ages 7–12.
