My Oh My! This Old Lady Swallowed… a Fly?!

This is probably one of my favorite stories to tell to our kids, mostly because it is just so absurd! I mean, an old lady swallows a fly, that I can believe. But a whole horse?! Crazy.

Despite the breaches in logic, our kids love this story just as much as we do. They feeding the old lady lots of bizarre animals…lol2
Then we get to go to our light tables and teach her how to eat right!

First we make the old lady out of kinetic sand and colored pasta.
