Have a go at drawing something new. There are loads of step by step guides available online and videos on youtube. Heres a link on how to draw a dolphin.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou7NitF6gkU.or I've included a step by step guide for a penguin below. Have fun and remember to send me your pictures.
To cheer myself up I've been thinking about hat I'd like to do when lockdown finishes- so I thought it would be an idea to start thinking about what you and your family would like to do when lockdown finishes.
Write down all the letters of the alphabet and match them to an activity that you can't wait to do! For example-
E might be Eat in McDonald's!
H might be Hug your grandparents!
Keep your list somewhere you can see it and every time you feel a bit fed up you can take a look to help you feel better!
How Do You Play Hopscotch?
1. Draw a traditional hopscotch diagram like the one below.
2. Throw a small stone, twig, beanbag, or other marker into the first square. (If it lands on a line, or outside the square, you lose your turn. Pass the marker to the following player and wait for your next turn.)
3. Hop on one foot into the first empty square, and then every subsequent empty square. Be sure to skip the one your marker is on.
4. At the pairs (4-5 and 7-8), jump with both feet.
5. At 10, hop with both feet, turn around, and head back toward the start.
6. When you reach the marked square again, pick up the marker—still on one foot!—and complete the course.
7. If you finished without any mistakes, pass the marker to the next player. On your next turn, throw the marker to the next number.
8. If you fall, jump outside the lines, or miss a square or the marker, you lose your turn and must repeat the same number on your next turn. Whoever reaches 10 first, wins.
5 Fun Hopscotch VariationsLooking for new ways to play? These five fun hopscotch games make things more challenging.
Watch The Time: Set the timer for 30 seconds. Each player must complete the course within the time frame to proceed. If you go into overtime, you lose your turn.
Sign On the Line: Instead of throwing the stone in numerical order, toss it in any square. When you complete a successful turn, initial the square where your marker landed and pass it to the next player. The game ends when all spaces have been initialed. The person with the most initialed squares wins.
Kick It: Try kicking the marker from space to space—with your hopping foot—as you jump through the course.
Name Categories: Label each hopscotch square with the name of a category (books, animals, pizza toppings, desserts, etc.). When you hop into a square, you must shout an item in its designated category. If you land in pizza toppings, for example, you might say pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, sausage, peppers, or bacon. You lose your turn if you can’t think of an item in that category, or if you repeat another player’s item.
Rearrange the Squares: You don’t need to draw the traditional hopscotch course. Look up new ideas online, or brainstorm new courses yourself.
Design and create a poster showing things or people that make you happy. You could include: family members, friends, toys, places, animals, pets, anything that makes you smile. Make it as colourful and as detailed as you can.
When you're done put it up somewhere at home for everyone to see and to make them smile too.

Take Care and Stay Safe
On one of my daily walks I came across these lovely pebbles that have been painted/coloured and placed around a bench on the planka. It really did make me smile! Have a go and paint/colour one in yourself and leave outside or add to the collection on the planka. I have included some ideas or use your own imagination.
