Friday 17th April
Today is International Haiku Day. A Haiku is a short poem, with three un-rhymed lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables and the third has 5 syllables. Here’s an example:
The blossom tree sways
Pink petals dance in the breeze
Spring – my friend – is here.
Task: Can you write a Haiku about where you live? Can you write a Haiku about nature? See how many Haikus you can come up with.
The Cares Family have compiled a calendar of daily creative distractions for the month of April. We’ve added each of them to our calendar to invite you to take part. Tick your ‘daily distraction’ off the list, share it to @TheCaresFamily Twitter account and please consider donating to this wonderful charity to support their Covid-19 emergency response. They are also working to help older people stay in touch during this disconnecting time.
You can find the printable checklist for the month in our Isolation Inspiration and Information section.
