about "idioms" through this creative activity! Have
children write and illustrate books about some pretty silly sayings
they often hear. Discuss what these sayings mean both literally
and figuratively. Examples may include:
- "It's raining cats and dogs outside!"
- "My dad said I had my head in the clouds!"
- "I've got a frog in my throat!"
