Colorful Owl Socks
Kids, I have a fun activity for you while you are wearing your Colorful Owl Socks! When I was a librarian I’d read a poem while two or three children acted it out. I promise you’ll enjoy it. If you have one of those big poetry books in your house, or a computer, get an adult to look up The Owl and the Pussycat, by Edward Lear. I’m sure it’s in there, it’s a famous poem!
Once you have your Colorful Owl Socks on, two of you should sit together on the floor. The poem starts, The owl and the pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat… Pretend you’re in a rocking boat, on the sea. Don’t get seasick! Then let the grown-up read some more. In the poem the owl plays a guitar, so use your imagination and “strum” your guitar, singing to the cat. How do you think an owl would sound? Look down at your bright, soft Colorful Owl Socks and imagine those silly owls singing. Your audience is hooting with laughter by now! The owl and the pussycat want to get married, so they borrow a ring. In the wood, a piggy wig stood, with a ring on the end of his nose! A third child can play that part. At the end of the poem, they danced by the light of the moon. By this time, all the kids are laughing, singing and dancing in their Colorful Owl Socks!
When you’ve all calmed down, take some crayons and paper, and draw an owl. Just look down at your feet, using your Colorful Owl Socks as a guide. Didn’t think you could draw an owl? Yes you can!
