Happy NZ Poetry Day from Poetry Box – ten cool things to do

 

Dear young poetry fans,

Today is National Poetry Day in NZ. A perfect time to celebrate poetry.

Here some ideas of what you might like to do:

  1. write a poem for someone you love and give it to them (Mum, Dad, a friend, a sibling, a grandparent)
  2. get a NZ poetry book out of the library, read it and write a letter to the author (send c/- publisher)
  3. buy a NZ poetry book, read it and write a letter to the author
  4. chalk a poem on the pavement at school
  5. make a poem tree in your school library
  6. make a poem tree at home and send me a photo
  7. make a poem poster of your favourite poem you have written
  8. make poem biscuits with words on (thanks the Lovewells!)
  9. video yourself reading a poem
  10. write a poem just for yourself. Put it an envelope and open it next year on Poetry Day!

 

warm regards

Paula
