This year when I make new posts, get ready for bursts of colour, excitement and creativity! I will try to make new posts every few days, to keep you interested. This is the same blog as my blog last year, however my 2012 posts will be even better than 2011’s!
I love art, it is really fun and you get to be creative. You can do what ever you want, without any restrictions.
A very interesting way to do art is on the computer. Many people wouldn’t even think of doing it on the computer, but it is very fun and it keeps your Mum happy, because then she doesn’t have to handwash your clothes (that are covered in paint) with extra Napisan washing powder! 🙂
Above, I made a picture on artPad. ArtPad is a website, where you can create your own painting. You can choose to paint with a normal brush, or a paint bucket. You can put your painting in a gallery and a choose the theme for the surrounding paintings. I chose Fantasy for mine.
If you want, try this website and see how fun it is!
Many people look forward to Christmas, including me. It’s my favourite time of the year!
However Christmas isn’t only about getting presents. Christmas is a time to get together and have fun. Most families have a big party and a feast, to celebrate. Some meals that people eat on Christmas are Pudding, Roast Turkey, Roast Ham, Mince Pies and more. They also eat lollies like Candy Canes.
Families decorate their house with Christmas lights and tinsel, to make their house look pretty. They put up a Christmas tree and decorate it with tinsel, baubles (small, colourful balls that are put on branches), Christmas lights and most importantly, a star or angel at the top.
On Christmas Eve, children leave cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for Reindeer. They leave Christmas stockings on their fireplace (if they have one).
Some children believe in Santa and some don’t, but that doesn’t stop us from having fun on Christmas!
A Storybird is a type of book you make on the computer. You type up your story and choose pictures to match it. They are fun, easy and are a great way to publish your stories. I’ve made some and here they are:
