Find your tasks for the day below!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Another day means we have another load of fun activities for you to get involved with!

1. Listen to the Story Quest podcast

Story Quest is our weekly podcast giving you brand new stories that are great for a bedtime listen, or if you just need to relax!

Have a listen to the most recent episode (or any that take your fancy) here…

MOBILE: Story Quest - Stories for Kids

Stories for kids and families, perfect for all ages! New episodes every week.

2. Learn about Gong Scourers

Kids who lived in the Victorian era had to do loads of jobs and some of the were really really gross!

Being a Gong Scourer was one of the worst jobs you could have.

You’ll have to watch the video to find out what it actually is but here’s a clue… it has a lot to do with poo!

3. Make your own face covering

We’re not going out a lot right now, but when we do a lot of us are having to wear a face covering.

You can buy them all over the but did you know you can actually make them yourself!

They’re really fun to make, just make sure you have an adult with you to help.

4. Write a Haiku

Haikus are really fun and easy to write.

They’re a type of poetry from Japan that follow a few simple rules.

It has to have 17 syllables split into 3 lines.

The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the last line has 5 syllables.

Here’s an example for you:

An old silent pond…

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.

Have a go at writing your own.

You can write it about anything you want! Your family, your favourite video game or even about Fun Kids if you wanted!

Tell us what you come up with in the form at the bottom of the page.
