Draw an outline of yourself. Around the outside, write words, phrases and sentences about what you love about your body, appearance and physical skills.

On the inside, write about the things you love about who you are as a person.

Birthday Suit



Birthday suit - The best to wear

Elastic-tastic shell

Magic suit grows as you do

And always fits so well


Don't squeal eww and ich and yuck

When leaping from the bath

Wipe the mirror clean of steam

Towel-dance and laugh


Nothing beats the feeling when

You're natural, young and free

Baby-naked in the world

Like you were born to be


So next time you are all alone

In your protective suit

Feel the breeze around your bits

Face yourself. Salute!


Toast the person who you are

Kiss yourself. Be proud

Body beautiful, unique

Enjoy! You are allowed


Wait before you pull on jeans

Embarrassed, full of shame

Mirrors are for looking in

Admire your super-frame


Stick your bum out. Shake it wild!

Beyoncé on the mat

Cart wheel, back spin, somersault

Above the flipping cat


Never would you go to school

With everything exposed

Not unless you've lost your brain

(Or reaaally hate your clothes)


But those moments all alone

Just me, myself and I

Bathe in all your gorgeousness

And don’t submit to shy


Love the hidden parts as much

Your secret, beating dreams

Inside-outside wizardry

A body wonder team


And never let the labels scar

or stitch onto your heart

Rip them out and throw them out

They weren’t there at the start


May you wear it long and well

Designer suit of birth

A tailored, one-off miracle

A stunning beast of Earth
