Writing about a myth I love – The Boy and the Nuts by Victoria

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved nuts! One day his mother took a jar filled with nuts and put it in the kitchen cupboard. Her little son saw his mum and asked her "Mum, can I get some nuts?" "Of course, my son" she said. She knew how much he liked nuts. Filled with excitement, the little boy put his hand inside the jar and took as many nuts as he could. He then tried to pull his hand out. But it wouldn't come out of the jar! Then he started crying. His mother got scared so she ran to him. "What happened, dear? I'm scared" she said. "I can't get my hand out of the jar" the boy said. "What?" She looked at his hand and smilled. "Why are you smiling?" he asked her. "Leave half of the nuts and you'll see how easily you hand will come out of the jar." she told him. "This happens to anyone who thinks only of himself and wants to have it all." his mother said and put the jar back on the top self again.


The myth teaches us that we must not be greedy, that is to want to have it all and try to have things as soon as possible!

Writing about a myth I love – Pandora’s box by Shaya

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there were two brothers named Epimetheus and Prometheus. They were good gods. They had good hearts. They were good friends.

One day, Prometheus got in trouble with Zeus. Angry over something or other, Zeus had declared that man did not deserve fire. Because he had a kind heart, and he knew how much man needed fire for food and warmth, Prometheus gave man the secret of fire even though Zeus had told all the gods not to do that. Zeus was furious that his order had been ignored. As punishment, Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock for many years.

But that was not enough punishment, not for Zeus. Once Prometheus was chained to a rock, Zeus went after Prometheus' brother, the gentle, kind-hearted Epimetheus. Zeus did not chain Epimetheus to a rock. Zeus had a more sneaky punishment in mind.

First, Zeus ordered the gods' handyman, the maker of things – Hephaestus – to make Zeus a daughter. Hephaestus made a woman out of clay, a beautiful woman. He brought her to life, and then brought her to Zeus. Zeus named his lovely new daughter Pandora.

Zeus knew that Epimetheus was lonely. Zeus told Epimetheus that his brother had to be punished and that's why he was chained to a rock. But Zeus felt sorry that this punishment left Epimetheus without the company of his brother. That's why Zeus had decided to give Pandora in marriage to Epimetheus.

Epimetheus was kind-hearted and gentle and thoughtful, but he was no fool. He knew Zeus was up to something. But he loved Pandora at first sight.

Zeus gave the newlyweds a gift. Some say it was a jar. Some say it was a box. Whatever it was, it was locked. It came with a note. The note said: "DO NOT OPEN." Attached to the note was a key. It was all very curious.

You can guess what happened next. It was Pandora whose curiosity got the better of her. One day, she used the key to open the box. As she raised the lid, out flew all the bad things in the world today – envy, sickness, hate, disease. Pandora slammed the lid closed, but it was too late.

Epimetheus heard her weeping. He came running. Pandora opened the lid to show him it was empty. Quickly, before she could slam the lid shut, one tiny bug flew out. He gave Pandora a big buggy smile in thanks for his freedom and flew away. That tiny bug was named Hope. And Hope made all the difference in the world.
