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.
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!
