Yesterday, my husband and I conducted free family tours across the back of our yard, which borders a creek. Can you tell who’s been to visit?

I teased our grandsons and niece that they could share this sighting for Show and Tell.  Actually, they’re a little old for this, but I did suggest they could raise their hands and volunteer the information.  Probably not the best idea on the first week of the school year in upper grades.

As I writer, I often hear write what you know.  Well this is something I know.  I’ve decided I should do just that.  Including this in a published picture book would be my preference, but for now, here’s my Show and Tell blog post.  😉

What exciting nature sighting can you share?  Let’s make this our own Show and Tell Friday.

Thanks for visiting.  Come again soon and bring a friend.  Please remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them. Thank you!

Show and Tell for All Ages…

Posted by lindamartinandersen on December 29, 2013

“Show and Tell for All Ages…” by Linda Martin Andersen

A Writer's Playground Fotosearch_u17996074 “A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

Have you ever played “Show and Tell?”  It is a favorite in most lower elementary grades. “The Remaining Gift” by Starr Ayers is a devotion that shares a variation of this game.  What a lovely holiday tradition.  Check here:


Let’s talk:  What item could you bring for “Show and Tell” this year?  I’d share a stack of cards sent to my husband and me during his illness.  I’d say a big thank you to all who have sent prayers and best wishes our way.   

Thank You!

I encourage you to let this game impact your New Year’s Resolutions for 2014. Visualize the “Show and Tell” you’d like to share at the end of 2014.  Then set your goal(s).  What tangible object will remind you of your goal(s)?

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Please come again soon.  Bring a friend. I appreciate any children who visit this site, but if you are 13 or under, you must not leave a comment.

Perhaps an adult would comment for you.
