There's Nothing Like Garden Creatures

Preschool children: 

Fairies:  Print thispicture for your child to color and discuss with you.  One sentence lets you record your child’s thoughts at this age and has a line for you to share your own thoughts with your child.

School agers:

 Gnomes  There’s nothing like garden gnomes.  Print this page and use it to write a story.  What kinds of statues have you seen in gardens?  What do you imagine these statues would do if they were alive?


Essay prompt:  In times past, people blamed fairies for their misfortunes.  What do people blame now and why?

Poetry prompt:  Limericks are five-line poems that are often comical or nonsensical.  Write a limerick or series of limericks about a little bit of mischief.  Specific details on the limerick’s form may be found at

Lifestory prompt 1: (Monday)  There’s nothing like a garden statues.  Tell a story about the non-growing aspects of your garden.

If you would like (and if it is okay with your parent or guardian), you can sign a submission form and return the form and your writing to the library.  Stories will be posted together on this blog beginning in November and in a book in the spring of 2014.
