For Where the Wild Things Are activities, it is time to let the children embrace their inner monster.

Bright Hub Education has another great idea for letting the kids have fun with the story and the characters. You can let the children recreate their own wild rumpus. If they made puppets you can let them use their puppets or otherwise just let them use their imaginations. Put on some music and let the kids create their own monster dance moves. If you have a large group of kids you can put them into groups and have them create their own dance. Choose some unbiased adults if any or let everyone vote to see which group does the best. Give all the groups a prize for having fun and being so creative with their dances.
