We played spoto at the zoo today. Which basically means when you see and animal you say spoto. Now this can be quite hard for the snakes, lizards and nocturnal animals. Not so tough for say a giraffe. Still it’s fun.

We love going to the zoo, any zoo. Each time the girls choose and animal and do a page in their scrapbooks. They put either a story, poem or get on the net and find out about that animal for their page. It’s lots of fun. Often they take their cameras and take their own photos too. I don’t have to stand behind them taking the same photos in focus anymore!

Today the girls decided they wanted to write a zoo rap! So we had fun looking at the animals and working out where they fit in.

So the rap starts like this:
One, two,
We went to the Zoo.

Three, four,

Monkeys doing lots of tricks.

Seven eight,
A lion banging on the gate.

Nine, ten
The otter in the water again.

That’s it at the moment, but I’m sure they will come up with more once they do their scrap books!

So that was the fun for the day. Now the kids are tucked up in bed. I’m sure they are dreaming of lions, tigers and the works. Me on the other hand really need to get some editing done. I need to fix my flash fiction piece for the Chapter book anthology. So that’s it for today. Until tomorrow – have fun!
