Children’s Stories Challenge Dec 12th


I have my new reading glasses so clearer print and pictures.  Today achieved more. Prince Dirk photograph of his Palace and photograph of socks for Christmas activity went into black and white version.  I had the idea that a photograph of a fish would be good instead of stamps onto a drawn fish (unable to find stamps I had) for a mini tangram. Underneath can be drawn own tangram. It took quite a while to organise the layout on the page of the fish to make sure it was big enough. Also tried another fish but too small. I’m thinking of activities that are to be coloured in or cut out to go in the back of the book.  We received some light rain about 2am or so this morning and I heard just over 3mm. I watered the plants yesterday so the rain would have been extra and it makes them refreshed and grow. Regards Madonna


About outback7

Hello - I live in what is called the Outback in Queensland, Australia about 7hours inland from Brisbane. My husband works as an Assistant Nurse. The town is small where I live and is on the highway. We have a tabby cat called Camellia. I have been writing poetry for about 12 years in friends and families cards. Also a small amount of poetry written at school years ago. I have also written about 10 songs and hoping to have some put to music. In the early 1990's I had a flood of inspiration and wrote 8 children's stories and later on activities. Having a teacher background used to planning activities in tutoring and now different ones in my stories. On Sept 21st I started a Children's Stories Challenge to self publish all the stories and blog on Wordpress. I will complete four stories in a book then the last four stories in a second book as size better that way. Each story has a message. It's great to have the motivation after watching the movie Julie and Julia (Meryl Streep) that gave me inspiration to start the Challenge as I did not have that much motivation before. I also want to be able to encourage people in their goals and what they may not have done for a while. Regards Madonna
