Chicken Salad

I just love this game. So much so that I have to share it here:

After a meal, the kids round up the leftovers from people’s plates as well as any old crusts of bread or stale crackers we happen to have around. These they bring outside and dump in a large plastic bowl along with shredded leaves, grass, and maybe even a juicy bug or two. One child who is chosen to be server then hoists the bowl high above his head and quite elegantly delivers the “salad” to a fortunate flock of very appreciative chickens.

Even after weeks of playing, they still haven’t grown tired of it. And neither have I.
