Poetry Workshop

Think of a place you love to go. Imagine yourself there and answer these questions:

  • What do you touch?

  • What do you see?

  • What do you smell?

  • How do you feel?

Now use your answers to write a poem! It doesn’t have to rhyme. Draw pictures around the words to decorate it.

Check out this great poem by Madelaine H. from Utah, USA!

I swing so high to touch the sky,

To look within the clouds.

I travel to big cities.

I get lost in all the crowds.

Even though I’m on a swing,

In my own backyard—

To travel all around the world,

It’s never very hard!

Ice-Cream-Cone Cake Pops

Make an ice-cream cone that won’t melt! Be sure to get an adult’s help.

15 mini ice-cream cones

1 9x9-inch (23x23-cm) cake of your choice (already baked)

Frosting of your choice

Melted chocolate

Toppings like nuts, sprinkles, or small candies

  1. In a big bowl, break the cake into small pieces. Add 1 cup of frosting. Mix it together until the cake is sticky but still crumbly.

  2. Shape half of the cake mix into 15 balls. Place them on a tray lined with waxed paper and refrigerate for an hour. Meanwhile, fill the ice-cream cones with the rest of the cake mixture.

  3. Use melted chocolate to “glue” the cake balls to the top of the cones. Refrigerate until completely set.

  4. Dip cake pops in melted chocolate so the top is covered. Finally, add toppings and enjoy!
