365: Poets day
August 21 is Poets day. We left Ohio at 3AM to head to our first stop in Florida, so we were limited to activities that can be done in a car.
We started by making up our own poems. Jude would grab toys and I would improvise rhyming lines of poetry. I have no idea what the final poem was but it definitely involved a doll going to a mall. This would have  been a great activity for Bad Poetry Day. If Jude was older, I would encourage him to make his own rhymes by offering him object pairs that already rhyme.
We finished up by reading Shel Silverstein. We read quite a few, but I’ll leave you with my favorite. 

Invitation by Shel Silverstein
If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. 
Come in! 
Come in!
