April 2012: Special Days

Every month has its fair share of holidays and special days of celebration and coming together for a good cause, and April is no exception! Check out the Kidworld Guide to April Special Days below to find out more on how you can celebrate and show you care this month!

Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month. Autism is a neurological or brain disorder that causes developmental disability. The disease affects the way the brain works; people with autism may have problems with communication, social interaction and unusual patterns of behaviour, activities and interests.

International Guitar Month

April is International Guitar Month! So get out your guitar (or go out and find one) and strum a few chords. If you don’t know how to play the guitar but have always wanted to try, this is a good month to sign up for a few lessons!

Keep America Beautiful Month

April is Keep America Beautiful Month. Let’s all do our best to keep the country and the whole world clean and garbage-free. Don’t ever litter and, if you see a piece of garbage on the ground, why not pick it up and put it where it belongs – in the trash?!

National Frog Month

Have a croaking good time and celebrate our little green friends! Why not have a frog party – you can play leap frog, practice your croaking and maybe even learn a little more about frogs by logging on to the Internet or cracking open a book about amphibians.

My sister turns 18 in as of now 20 minutes, so she's going to be locked out. I'm kind of sad, but here's to you @Katara 9296   You will be missed. Granted, she hasn't logged in in a while, but it still kind of makes me sad.

(:P So for Hearth, I'm replacing him with Solomon Wreath from Skulduggery Pleasant . And Blitz is being replaced by Kotake from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ... except a slightly altered version of her, more of a reincarnation, since Link and Zelda are always reincarnated versions of the two same people. XD You can do the same sort of thing with your guys if you want to change the person in some sort of little way. I'll start writing as soon as you pick your dudes out.)

(Since it's not an RP, it's kinda pointless to make forms. We can just divvy up characters to choose, and say, for example: "Magnus is Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians. " If the other person doesn't know the character, they can research them a bit so they're more confident writing with them. So to make this completely random, I used a random number picker to assign characters to each of us. The randomness came up with you choosing the replacements for Magnus and Sam, and for me to do Hearth and Blitz.)

If we were doing  The Sword of Summer , here's the people we would likely replace with some of those swapped dudes: Magnus Blitz Hearthstone Samirah Yeah? And since this would be considered a roleplay if we just took small turns, we'll write it in larger chunks and just leave off where the other continues, and choose where each of us keeps going. I could start it out after we determine the characters, if that was confusing.) (Yeah. ok! YAY you even listed the charactersssss!!! And that's exactly what i was thinking XD It was confusing. Should be make forms?......and you can start if you want XD)
