365: Winnie the Pooh Day

January 18 is Winnie the Pooh Day, and to pay homage to the tubby little cubby, we colored Winnie the Pooh pictures with Jude's cousins and read a Pooh poem by A.A. Milne. 
This was Jude's first time using crayons, and I would say it was a success. Other than some light chewing, he marked all over the paper seemingly understanding that they make color. Our final product had some extra coloring marks from his very helpful cousin, but the lighter marks belong to Jude.
Athena enjoyed coloring and the poem the most. We read "Us Two" by A.A. Milne. Jude passively listened, Athena listened intently, and Lincoln got bored and left halfway through the poem. Athena felt so called by the poem that she decided to create her own poem. She dictated the first stanza and then spoke so quickly I lost track. I will include the poem at the end of the post. Athena realized that the A.A. Milne poem used repetition, so she used it in her own poem (even past the first stanza). It's pretty amazing what a kid can do when you give them creative freedom! 

Paw Patrol GO! by Athena C.
Oh Marshall, what are you doing? 
What are you doing forever?
I'm just cleaning my fire truck you see you see 
Oh what are you doing you see you see?
Sneaking a pup treat
I'm going to tell Ryder you see.
Oh no
Oh Marshall it's okay
I'll put you in your clubhouse for trouble
You see you see
