A Little Fun... and a Contest!

Are you singing those stuck-in-the-middle-of-the-work-week blues?


Never fear!  FUN is here!


First, for our writing audience, A Writing Prompt in case you're stuck in more than just the middle of the week!
In deference to yesterday's discussion of pioneer life:)  Electricity is a recent discovery.  Think of 10 things to do when there's no power.  Now, use them all or pick just one or two, whatever blows your hair back, and write a story or a poem!


Next, for our teaching/parenting audience, A Fun Activity.  Print the Punxsutawney Phyllis and/or Uncle Phil paper doll kits from my website.
http://www.susannahill.com/resources_files/PhyllisPaperDoll2.pdf   and
https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B1IHqaWYE9OqMDk1N2VlMzYtMmJiNS00MGZlLTk5MjctYjFiNDU4NTVjMGZj&hl=en
Help your students/children color them in holiday-themed ways, cut them out, hang them on red, green, silver or gold ribbon, and use them to decorate your classroom/home/xmas tree etc.  For further fun, make up a holiday story for Phyllis!


Finally, for all audiences, A Contest!  Submit an idea for the tagline for this blog (it currently says "author of many books for children... with more to come" but that's what my website says - I want something different and fun!)  Submit your ideas in the comments section.  You may submit as many as you like.  If I choose yours, you win!  If none of them suit me, we'll have a vote on which one blog readers think is best, and that will be the winner (although in that case, I might not use it.)  Three requirements: 1. to be eligible to win, you must be a follower of this blog (anyone can vote if we come to that) 2. Entries must be submitted by Wednesday December 15 (one week from today) and 3. I must receive at least 10 entries.  The prize for the winner will be a personalized signed copy of whichever of my books they would like in time to give as a holiday gift if you so choose :)


Now, isn't your Wednesday looking up?  Have a great day!
