What's New on the Website?

12th January 2018
Our "colouring quotes" are proving to be one of our most popular downloads, and we think this week's new pages are going to be in great demand! If you are enjoying these, you can expect 2 new pages / cards each week for at least another few months ... we have many more ideas to come!
Also this week we have new acrostic poem printables, writing pages and photographic posters on an animal theme, some lovely new Year of the Dog printables, and two poets! 
Scroll down to find out what's new.
PS: MLK Day is on Monday and we have new activities on Dr Martin Luther King Jr in the making which have just missed the newsletter deadline. I hope to get them up on the website later today (Friday).

A Little Something ...
One midnight, deep in starlight still,
I dreamed that I received this bill:

Five thousand breathless dawns all new; 
One million flowers fresh in dew. 
Five thousand sunsets wrapped in gold; 
One million snowflakes served ice-cold;
Five quiet friends, one baby's love; 
One white-mad sea with clouds above;
On hundred music-haunted dreams
Of moon-drenched roads and hurrying streams;
Of prophesying winds, and trees;
Of silent stars and browsing bees;
One June night in a fragrant wood; 
One heart that loved and understood. 
I wondered when I waked at day - 
How - how in God's name - I could pay?
