Chapter 3: Props
Everyday playtime by Aiden. Toys are an endless source of inspiration for your funny bone. Sometimes your mom can be amused just by your everyday playing. For example I was once playing with dinosaurs, and decided to incorporate some newly learned information. “Aaah, run! The T-Rex said to the other dinosaurs. “The paleontologists are trying to kill us to put our bones in a museum. Run!”
Use what you can to get a laugh by Kian. Mr. Potato Head toys are perfect props. Wear the Mr. Potato Head’s glasses, stick his noses in your nostrils (or I mean snotters), and stick the feet in between your fingers and make up funny songs while making the feet dance. If you have dress ups, use them. I promise, everything is funnier when you are wearing a mustache, cowboy hat, ninja armor, a superhero mask and a cape, don’t forget to add in your own theme music. My personal favorite is the Darth Vadar theme from Star Wars.
Chapter 4: Take Everything Literally
Don’t Try to Cheer Me Up By Kian. I don’t always understand all the meanings of the words my Mom uses, but I have learned that this can also be funny. Last year as preschool was ending I was a little sad, so my Mom said cheerily, “but aren’t you so excited for Summer Break.” I couldn’t believe she would say such a thing. “No,” I answered, it’s broken.”
Pilgrim’s Progress by Aiden. I came home from preschool with some pilgrims I had made, my Mom asked if the pilgrims came here on a boat. “No”, I said. “So how did they get here?” She asked. Boy was my Mom being dumb, I answered, “I just put them in my backpack and brought them home.”
If you have enjoyed this learn by example guide be sure to implement similar tactics. We promise that it will endear you to your mother for the rest of your life.
