Daffadowndilly is a poem by A.A. Milne (yes, the same man that wrote the Winnie the Pooh stories). We read it a couple of weeks ago. The boys thought the name was silly and fun (I agreed). I liked that it called attention to a flower and wanted to transfer that to the real world for the boys. Now is the perfect time to do that as spring has brought out the daffodils here.
We've made up a game where anytime we see daffodils, the person who sees them will yell out "Daffadowndilly!". Then someone else will say "Ding-Dong!" meaning you got one. It started out as 'ding-ding' but somehow ended up as 'ding-dong'. lol
Mainly it's been Tigger and I playing, but I do notice that Pooh is paying attention to what's going on. He'll look when we yell at the daffodils and today when I said 'ding-ding' instead of 'ding-dong' he pointed out my error. he he
Anyhoo, I thought I would share the game in case anyone else wants to play!!
