Are you here to play hopscotch with me? I have a bag of colorful rocks here to toss for our markers and we’ll draw the grid we need with chalk. I know you wouldn’t think of me jumping, but I’m really quite good! There’s nothing more I love than to enjoy playing games, join me! I promise to be extra careful not to step on your toes as we skip along. So pick your color and we’ll start our game.Find Food
Wiggle! Wiggle! I see my ‘prey’ in the high grasses! I can sneak up and catch it with my long trunk, I have been taking pouncing lessons from the lion cubs. If I crouch down low enough, no one will ever see me! I love this game of pounce! Somehow though, I never seem to hide quite well enough. My friends always seem to find me! Come join in the fun, it’s just what everypet needs, a little time out to play away the day!
1.. 2… 3… 4… 5…. 6… 7…. 8… 9… 10! Ready or not, here I come! (giggle) Where are you hiding my friend? I shall flap my ears and listen close, so be sure to be extra quiet! Wait! What’s that smell my trunk has detected? Peanut butter and jelly! Why it’s every elephant’s favorite! MMmm, I bet if the breeze keeps blowing, I’ll find that delicious snack! BOO! (giggle). I found you! Next time, don’t snack on an elephant’s favorite food when hiding!
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!The Quarter Mile
The Quarter Mile begins with running away from cats. Great big cats with huge teeth and claws that like the taste of anything that can’t run fast enough to get away. Of course when Frank the Pig put an end to killing and eating, that left a lot of fabulous natural athletes with nothing to do all day but graze. Some are happy like that. Others point scornfully at Milky Moo Cows and pour contempt on moon jumping. But the cows reply, “we have our own sport. What have you got that’s so special?”
Big quadrupeds didn’t like the idea of opal tossing or weightlifting, and how could they sail or climb trees? When the cows said they were running away from the idea of sport, the answer was obvious; who can run like a big powerful quadruped? All you need is a start and a finish point, and a crowd.
