Hey hey everyone! :D We're kicking off Birthday Week with the hashtag #ShareYourArt! Post any pieces of artwork you'd like to share on your wall with this hashtag. (Bonus points if it's YWS or birthday-related!)

Here's an example of a fun little doodle I made:

Your art absolutely does not have to be professional-- it just has to be family friendly and something you'd like to share! ^-^ This hashtag will run the entire week. Can't wait to see all your art! <333

Hey friends!!! Today is November 15th… which means today we will be playing #2Truths1Lie!

Let's have a quick explanation of how this game works.

I'm sure you have all heard of the game Two Truths and a Lie before. Basically, you share three statements. 2 of them are true about you and one is false.

Today, we will be playing this sitewide on YWS to celebrate birthday week. Here's what you can do to participate: post three statements on your wall, two of them being true and one made up. On your wall post, use the hashtag- #2Truths1Lie.

You can put the correct answers in a spoiler. Then go to other people's walls and try to guess which statement is a lie in the comments!

This is a fun way to learn more about each other and celebrate YWS's 19th birthday!!

Happy truthing- and lying- everyone!! If you need an example, feel free to pop over to my wall and see how I've done it :D
“I said Ian assisting on the seat that’s ckaosedy to the doe”

I'm here for you!

Ellie- Evie- Mae

Another day of birthday fun in this wonderful week!

Show your poetry love for YWS by writing a birthday-themed acrostic!

An acrostic is a form of poetry where you use a word and make each sentence begin with that letter from that word.

For this challenge, you can use any birthday, party, or YWS words!

Just share with a hashtag #BirthdayAcrostics

Get Poeting!
