If Pickles Could Talk

Required:

  • Your time only

What would the inanimate objects in your household say if they could talk? Ask your child to choose an everyday item and tell you what that object has to say.

For example, if pickles could talk, they might say, "Hey, I've been cooped up in this jar for way too long. No! Don't spear me with that fork! Use your fingers. Wait a minute. You're not planning to take a bite out of me, are you? Ouch!"

Or the table might say, "It's almost time to get me ready for dinner. I really enjoy wearing the silk cloth, but I suppose I can settle for the plastic one today. How many place settings will I get to hold? Oh, four. Good. I like it when everyone's around for mealtime."

You can take on the role of an inanimate object, too, and have a conversation with your child, who is also in character. If pickles could talk… what do you suppose they would say to one another?
