February – the month for love; lovers of football, denim and pets. We’re going to get fit with a bit of doga, celebrate Elmo’s birthday and wear teal. We’ll show off our manners, enjoy biscuits and be kind. Most of all, we will have fun!

Let’s play…

Daily Themes and Creativity Prompts

WED 01 :: SOMETHING SPECIAL it’s always nice to treat yourself. Something special might be a walk along the beach, snuggle time with the family, a little food treat. Start the month on a positive note with something special for yourself.

THU 02:: BOOMERANG what would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same? You guessed it, it’s Groundhog Day! Share a video using Boomerang for Groundhog Day today.

FRI 03 :: ELMO It’s hard not to love that little, scraggy bundle of orange fur. Say happy birthday Elmo by paying homage to orange, Sesame Street or the great muppet himself.

SAT 04 :: FACEBOOK speaking of birthdays, today is Facebook’s anniversary. It’s kind of like birthday. Today Facebook turns 12. If you have one, share your Facebook page and make some new friends today.

SUN 05 ::  SUPERBOWL the greatest day of football in the US. How will you be celebrating?

MON 06 ::  LOOK UP what do you see?

TUE 07 :: ON THE BED are you allowed on the bed or is it forbidden? Perhaps you have your own, special bed. Give us a peek.

WED 08 :: EARS are they fluffy or short haired? Brown, black or tan? Short or curly?

THU 09 :: MANNERS do you try to practice your manners each day? You choose whether you share a photo of good manners or bad.

FRI 10 :: TAIL  We’ve seen your ears, now show us your tail. Will it be wagging or curled up under you while you are sleeping?

SAT 11 :: NATIONAL PET ADOPTION DAY Every year around 230,000 animals remain unclaimed in shelters around Australia.  That’s around 110,000 dogs and 120,000 cats that are left without a loving family to call their own. And, devastatingly, there’s around 100,000 animals that are PTS each year. Today, let’s remind everyone to #adoptnotshop

SUN 12 ::  DELICIOUS are you enjoying a tasty treat today? What is something that you find irresistibly delicious?

MON 13 ::  ME TIME the humans have possibly headed off to work today. How are you spending your ‘me time’ today?

TUE 14 :: VALENTINE’S DAY it’s the day of love. Share the feeling with those around you.

WED 15 :: HOW I FEEL for some people, Valentine’s Day is a tough day. Today, time some time check how you’re feeling. Make sure you’re feeling and if you notice someone around you feeling a bit sad, take time to make them feel a little better.

THU 16 :: THROW BACK it’s Thursday, after all. Give us a photo from this time last year.

FRI 17 :: KINDNESS today is Random Acts of Kindness Day. Never underestimate the power a hug, a smile, a kind word or a listening ear can bring. Be kind today and express this in your photo.
