Attention, Cunning Linguists!

If you like having fun with the visuality of language, I recommend having a play with "wordles".
Wordles is a tool for generating 'word clouds' from text you provide.
If some words appear more often in the text than others, they're given more prominence. You have the options of changing colours, fonts, layouts...and then using them in any manner you wish: perhaps as a visual aid in a presentation, a T-shirt, you could even select lyrics from your favourite song to create a poster. Here's one I created using text from this blog. Enjoy!

I tried this myself and had alot of fun. Think I'll show this to my pupils and get them to try expressing themselves with it!
