Most kids have this idea that wolves are bad; mainly because of the way they are portrayed in movies and books (anyone remember Little Red Riding Hood?). However, beneath that rough, furry exterior is a misunderstood creature. Wolves are highly intelligent and make great spirit animals for kids. They represent loyalty, family, freedom, and independence – all values that should be instilled at a young age. Here are a few things to bring out the wild side of your little one.

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. You can opt for a light switch plate or an outlet cover (or both just to throw that out there).
