Maxine here is what I call a Krazy Kritter. Maxine and her cousin are new, ideal for kids or the kid at heart and FREE! My example is just an idea for coloring and when you download Maxine, she will be a black and white page for you to color.

This is another Krazy Kritter I created and it was a lesson that I taught when I was teaching art. Students learned a lot about texture or how something feels. They used drawn texture on their Kritters and came up with some amazing characters. So, after you color Maxine you can make a Krazy Kritter of your own. You can look at the texture or lines I made, add lines of your own or look for ideas on the internet and search 'drawn texture'. You can also write about you're Kritter.
Here's the Making part. First, you need to choose a couple of your favorite animals to make a Kritter. For Maxine I chose a rhinoceros, elephant and a green feathered bird. Then, do some sketching or drawing, don't forget you're texture or lines on your character. When you have your Kritter drawn in pencil outline it with marker. Next, do the coloring. I used crayons and did some layering or put one color on top of another. You use the media or coloring supply that you like.
Here's the writing part. I wrote about Mavis and my students wrote about their Kritter as well. Mavis had a little problem and that's what I wrote about. First name your character and you can write about your Kritter too, if you like.
"Oh by the way, Maxine is related to Mavis, big surprise, but they don't look alike and Maxine eats bananas not cupcakes. She's more elephant and Maxine's more Rhinoceros."
This is Mavis P. Rhinophant's story. She's the other Krazy Kritter. "My name is Mavis and I am very shy and a little scared. You see I am part elephant and part rhinoceros but for some reason little feathers keep popping out on me and they're on my tail too. Eeek this makes me afraid. Could I have another animal inside of me? Anyway, I am nice because I'm a lover not a fighter. Also, I eat cupcakes and everyone that eats cupcakes are nice, right?"
*Have FUN and enjoy coloring Maxine and making you're own Krazy Kritter!
