Week Eight Blogging Task

It's officially December and you know what that means... Christmas!! This week I want you to blog about your most memorable Christmas. It might have been one year when you got an amazing present, or when you did something different from usual. Or maybe, it's that you like Christmas so much, you could pick any year! If you are really struggling to think of one, you could create your own memorable Christmas...

Week Five Blogging Task

Write a list of 10 things that make you happy. For each thing, write one sentence explaining why it makes you happy. If you want to write more than one sentence explaining it you can!

For example: #1: Helping other people. When I help other people, it makes me happy because I am doing something good for both myself and someone else.

Week Four Blogging

The 100 word challenge blogging prompt this week is a picture of what some might consider an unusual statue in St Louis, USA. See if you can think of a title/name for the statue - this will help give you some ideas. You might want to write as if you were the statue, or a tourist visiting the statue... the ideas are endless! I can't wait to read what creative things you come up with!
