Ostrich and Monster(s)

The game we taught Clara's friend Henry when we were over there yesterday.  Someone gets to be the ostrich (stretch one arm up and make your hand look like an ostrich head  by squeezing straightened fingers and thumb together, other hand dangles limply on your behind in manner of tail feathers).  Everyone else playing makes clawed paws with their hands and roars.  Ostrich, silent, pursues monsters and tickles with its beak until it's bored THEN it runs away shrieking, for fun, in falsetto with the roaring monsters in hot pursuit.

Henry's Mum likely hates us today.

  1. LOVE this. We have a similar monsters game in this ostrich's involved here though. Actually I'm pretty sure my 3 year old has no clue what an ostrich even is. YET. That'll be our next science lesson. ;)
