The Name Game

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

During Celebrate Your Name Week (the first week of March), challenge everyone in your family to use their own name as inspiration for the answer to that age-old question, "If you could be any kind of animal, what would it be?"


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers, crayons, or colored pencils


  1. For some silly answers, have each person fold a piece of plain white paper in half, write or print his name along the fold (omitting the parts of any letters that normally go below the line), and then carefully cut it out.
  2. Next, he should unfold the paper and use markers, crayons, or colored pencils to create a critter that fits the shape of his name.
