A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart “B is For Butterbeans, Bonfires, and Buttons” by Linda Martin Andersen
This month I’m sharing photos and blog posts from A-Z. I’m excited about trying something new. I hope you’ll stop by often throughout the month.
Check out the participants for the April (2016) Challenge. There are plenty to choose from http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
B is for Butterbeans–five bushels of butterbeans
Last summer, Amy Ludwig VanDerwater asked for volunteers to submit Summer Notebook Projects for Kids and I contributed my springboard activity. https://lindamartinandersen.wordpress.com/2015/05/27/try-this-look-for-a-springboard/
I don’t know if she’ll repeat the notebook project, but you can contact her to see. Amy has a new poetry book out called Every Day Birds. Check it out and her poetry blog called “The Poem Farm.” It’s National Poetry Month. I hope you’ll visit lots of poets.
B is for Bonfire
I live out in the country in a home with a septic tank. One year, we decided to cut a full-grown magnolia tree that grew on top of our septic tank lines. We watched the bonfire, much like others watch fireworks. When I think of bonfires, I think of high school homecomings and the memory of our magnolia. Name occasions when you’ve attended a bonfire. What memories stand out for you?
B is for Buttons
People who know me well know that buttons bring back special memories for me. One such friend gave me these framed cloth gifts. Who knows you well enough to find those “just right” gifts?
What “B” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you. Maybe one of these will serve as a springboard or a writing prompt.
Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.” Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment. Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them. For more fun, sign up to follow my blog. Thank you!
