Kids say the darnedest things…

Pardon the cliché of the title, but I had a great response from a year 3 child visiting from Tyntesfield Primary School yesterday. They were taking part in our Tall Tales session and being wonderfully creative.

I had just retold the story of Odysseus and the Cyclops which relates to a jug in our collection.

To help bring the story to life, we were talking about what the characters on the pot might be thinking at this point in the story after the Cyclops has been blinded by Odysseus.

The response I got?

“The sheep is thinking ‘The floor is so slippery (with blood).'”

Inspired!
