Dam, Who Lives Here?

I don't know about your kids but the girls love playing on the computer. Some of their favorite activities are:

  • Typing their names using Word
  • Listening to music on grooveshark (because you can pick which songs and how often you hear them) in our rotation is: Gotta Pebble in my Shoe - Ella Fitzgerald and That's How you Know (Enchanted) - Amy Adams (that's it over and over and over)
This post is about one particular game they like to play at Peep and the Big Wide World. Have you seen Peep? It's a really cute cartoon about a chick (Peep), a bird (Chirp), a duck (Quack) and various animal friends.

On to the game, it's called House Hunt. It's basically a memory matching game where you match an animal with its house. When you click on a leaf it tells you the name of the animal or what kind of house is on the leaf. Along the way, you get some questions and encouraging words like "Who lives here?," "Rabbit," "Good Job!," "Nice going!" "Where does this animal live?,".

One animal friend that lives here is a beaver and the beaver lives in a dam. And I can't help it. I laugh every time I hear the girls play this game (yes I am easily amused). "Beaver, Where does this animal live? Dam! Good Job!" or "Dam, Who lives here?"

You really should play the game to hear how it sounds. So funny.

*I had a .wav file I created of the game but I don't know how to put it here and it's really late and I'm too tired to try and figure it out. I'll try again later. In the meantime, go play the game. It's really fun.
