Hello again! This is my second blog post for Molly Monday! Thank you for all your support and kind comments on last week's blog, I hope you all had a great week.
This Sunday is valentine's day and there is love in the air. Here are some Valentines activity ideas.
I am going to design a postcard and a shrink plastic keyring (Click here for a how-to guide) for my friend and hand post on one of my evening dog walks.
You could even draw them a picture, maybe a detailed one of something they love or enjoy. If i was going to one for my amazing teacher Mrs Wilson, I may do an owl. If I was going to do one for Mrs Roberts I may do a cat or tortoise / turtle.
If you were to do any of the ideas above you may want to include a card or a postcard with a handwritten message as my kind Mum got me a book of them, so I am doing those instead but you could make your own. If you look at some postcard layout online you could then make your own with an cool design on it.
Exercise is important to keep our bodies and minds healthy, so next week in half term (can’t believe that’s next week) I am going to do some cycling across the bridge and back. I may even do some running too because I enjoy it but you could go for a walk or just do a workout by Joe Wicks, whatever you do just enjoy it.
Our school staff are doing so well in these troubling times and our education is very important and that’s why I am going to set a challenge. I challenge you to make a daily plan so you do your school work and exercise as this will make you feel great. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body.
My routine is to wake up, go downstairs and watch my TV. My very kind Mum will make me some breakfast then I get dressed brush my teeth and hair and we take my dog Pirate for a walk. When we come back, I do my school work until 12:00 when we have lunch. At around 5:00 we have tea, then we take pirate for his evening walk and I do my evening routine.
Routines and structure can make us all feel much better in times like these. Give it a go and see how you feel!
If you want something that will give you a sense of achievement during half term you could start to earn a Blue peter badge. It may take some time but it will be worth it! I have ten badges myself and I am so proud to have them and I plan on earning more. Click here to find out all about the different badges and how to earn them. I recommend starting with the Blue badge.
Thank you for reading my second blog post, my next blog post will be on February 22nd, after half term. Have a great 2 weeks everyone!
