As a proud father of a three year old who is just entering the “poop is funny stage,” (does it ever really end?) we discovered a fun game that is not only educational, but plays to both of our fascination with poop;
- Take any children’s book
- Pick the noun and adjective that appear most frequently in the book, and replace with “poopy”. There is a LOT of repetition, so these can be hilarious, since poopy is both a functional noun and adjectives.
- For example, in Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dog, of course becomes poopy. In the “Clifford the Firehouse Dog” we swapped every fire adjective with poopy: “Clifford the PoopyHouse Poopy”.
- This yields great ones like; “Nero lives in a poopyhouse, he is a poopy rescue poopy.” “Just then a group of schoolchildren came in for a poopy safety class.” “Nero showed them what to do if their clothing was on poopy. To smother the poopy, you stop, drop to the floor, and roll until the poopy is out.”
You get the idea. Poopy is now not only fun but educational. Huzzah for poop!
