Hey Skylarks! :)
The Easter holidays have arrived and I hope you all enjoy the time spent with family! :) Over the holidays I have some ideas for you... it's totally optional but I thought they would be some really lovely activities for all of us to do... including ME! :)
A Gratitude Journal!
It is like a diary that you keep about what you are grateful for each day. You could do it as a family or with your siblings or make an individual one! :)
I have included some examples below of what they could look like... but this is totally up to you, your own personal project! :) Here are some ideas to get your thinking...
- Creating a scrap book.
- Using a notebook.
- Typing it on a laptop or computer.
- Use a printed template.
- Using photos and pictures.
If you would like to use a template I have attached a variety below for you to choose. :)
This can be a fun project to work on with your family and focus on positivity during these strange times. When we come back to school we can all share them with each other! I cant wait to see what you all create... please email me your progress over the holidays, use our class email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another great way to unwind and relax is to have a go at some mindfulness drawing. It's not about the outcome, it's about the process, so even if you think art isn't your 'thing', give it a go!
Set yourself a challenge to learn something new!
Why not take the chance to try out something new or something you've not done in a long time? Make it something creative or something you find fun to do.
- learn to juggle
- pick up that recorder or guitar you've not played in a long time (if you have one!)
- Do stretches (carefully) every day until you can do the splits!
- Learn a new language
- Paint a picture
- The possibilities are endless! Good luck. Have fun and send us some photos of you doing your challenge!
I am going to have a go at painting, which is something I not done in a long while! Here's the evidence! Who can guess what I might paint? I will post another picture when it's finished!
