Fun with Chips (Cont.)

Okay, this one is gonna be quick.

My daughter just climbed up on my lap and asked me to spend the day with her. Yesterday, I did spend all day in my office, working, trying to get caught up on everything that piles up so quickly - you know how it is.

So, I can't refuse her!! :-)

Anyway, back to the chip story. For those of you who missed the first part yesterday, you can read it here:http://www.homeschoolcookbook.com/2005/05/fun-with-chips.html

So, we were laughting and giggling and having a big time. Then the game took a silly twist.

Ryan, my middle one, is dyslexic and if you know how they think, then you know they can blow your mind away with what they can see that others can't. So, he had this chip that was almost a perfect curve and he was holding it up and we were all trying to guess what it was...

A tunnel??? no....

A cave??? no....

A tent!!! I practically screamed, but no....

Can you guess what it was?

We guessed and guessed and guessed - all to no avail. Finally, we all gave up.

'You give up?' he asked, just grinning proudly.

'Yep' we all answered.

'It's an eyebrow!'

An eyebrow??? All of us were confused. Then he held up the chip again and showed us that if you looked just at the edge of it, it was arched like an eyebrow.

Now, who woulda seen that???? Only my Ryan.

But that revealed to us a new level of creativity and imagination for playing and guessing the game.

Hey, you learn something new everyday - I just didn't expect it to come from a chip!

Have a great one!
