Fly Swat Painting




There was an old lady who swallowed a fly


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,


That wriggled and wiggled and tickled inside her;


She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;


How absurd to swallow a bird.


She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,


She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady who swallowed a cat;


Fancy that to swallow a cat!


She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,


She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,


She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady that swallowed a dog;


What a hog, to swallow a dog;


She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,


She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,


She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,


She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady who swallowed a cow,


I don't know how she swallowed a cow;


She swallowed the cow to catch the dog,


She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,


She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,


She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,


She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;


I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!


There was an old lady who swallowed a horse...She's dead, of course!


Master 2 and master 4 have taken a real shine to the rhyme There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. After reading it today we decided to get out the Fly Swats and get painting. As you can see the boys had a great time and it provided another great opportunity for colour recognition practice for Master 2 and Master 4 enjoyed swatting the colours over each other to make new colours. The end product looked great and I'm going to take a piece from the painting and trace the Old Lady from the story and put it into their art folders.
