Poetry in the Post: Pack 29

When thinking about different creative formats, and what we can combine with crafts, what better than poetry to get us feeling creative? Not only does reciting poetry have physical health benefits, but it can also lift our mood and create a sense of calm. Using poetry in our crafts is a great way to combine two ways of expressing ourselves.

In Pack 29 you will find:

  • Wellbeing: An article about Scottish Poetry (with a famous example) and a discussion around poetry and wellbeing.

  • Health: An article about the health benefits to reciting poetry and a look at poetry in different cultures.

  • Creativity: A tutorial for using words in visual arts, a guide to starting with highlight poetry art, a word based bookmark to decorate and three colouring pages.

We hope that you enjoy your pack.
