Kokology --
Oodles Of Doodles

WoooHooo, puppy day & Kokology Thursday.  That's right folks, today is the day we get to bring little Mika the Silky-Yorkie home.  We are so excited here, we can hardly contain ourselves.  I think I bought every toy in the pet store yesterday.  Hope he loves us as much as we love him!

Now, who's up for a game of Kokology today?

Oodles Of Doodles:
Schoolchildren understand that page margins were made for doodling.  It's almost sinful to let all the empty white space in a notebook go to waste.  Scribbles, squiggles, googly-eyed faces, and hearts with arrows quickly grow and multiply, crowding into the writing space mid page.  give a child a notebook , a pencil, and sufficient time (say, the length of a history lesson), and that boundless imagination spills forth onto page after page.  We're taught that doodling is a bad habit, and the notebooks we keep as adults are neater (if duller) for it.  but wouldn't it be a little sad to see a student whose notebooks were filled with page after page after page of neatly printed notes and flanked by clean margins on both sides?

Imagine you are a child, doodling happily away.  You have begun to draw a picture of a bear.  Which of the following looks most like your art?

1.  A bear snoozing away contentedly.
2.  A bear with its arms raised in a frightened pose.
3.  A mother bear leading her cub.
4.  A cute bear, like a stuffed toy.

*You can leave a comment with your answers or keep them to yourself  - it's up to you.

Oh! This is a good one! What did you pick?

I picked #1. (I guess there's hope for me yet!) ;)

I picked #4 :S
I have three other siblings...Hopefully they will pitch in with the care of old mommy dearest.

Would it be fair to ask my children to play this one to see what they pick? lol

Jack said...

Ahhh! I read this wrong I think.. oops!
"For women, the bear you saw yourself drawing is your image of yourself as a mother or the kind of mother you expect to become;

Yikes!! I hope I'm not that mom...

Jack said...

Hmmm. I'm interested in see reactions from others with this Kokology.

I'm sure the puppy will love his new home :)

I chose #2 and looking back on my life it is very true--I suffer from mother bear syndrome in a bad way.

I chose number 3.

Also, if your puppy goes missing, you know I only live a few hours away... (I need one.)

I chose No. 1--*sleepy bear*, and at first thought it meant "my" mother, and you know, she was always an easy-going, loved-being-a-mom kind of mother but is a neatnik, so the den we grew up in was tidy, always. If I read it as describing me as a mother, then I think that makes sense, too.
