Create a fun avatar inspired by the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series on the Wimp Yourself website. This would be a fun activity to go along with reading the book, for create an illustration to accompany a Diary of a Wimpy Kid-inspired journal entry, or to create an avatar for student blogs. Below is a screenshot of my own Wimp Yourself creation. Because the page is animated (your avatar will move around a little bit), I had to use Ctrl+Print Screen in order to capture the image of my cartoon character.
