Felt Board Story: Christmas, Kwanzaa & Hanukkah!!

November 26, 2012 by Andrea

I attempted my own Old Lady Who Swallowed A…. story to combine Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Going off a candle theme she at the end burps out a kinara, menorah and Christmas tree! All inclusive, haha! The picture of my pieces is at the bottom, feel free to change anything!

 

There was an old lady who swallowed a candle,
I don’t why she swallowed the candle.
Oh what a scandal.

There was an old lady who swallowed a match!
Opened her mouth and whoosh, down the hatch.

She swallowed the match for the fire she grew that burned and turned alit all inside her,
I don’t know why she swallowed the candle.
Oh what a scandal.

There was an old lady who swallowed some wood.
I am not sure who told her she should. 

She swallowed the wood for the match to handle.
She swallowed the match for the fire she grew that burned and turned alit all inside her.
I don’t know why she swallowed the candle.
Oh what a scandal. 

There was an old lady who swallowed some metal.
She was not so dainty, like a flower petal. 

She swallowed the metal for something to do.
She swallowed the wood for the match to handle.
She swallowed the match for the fire she grew that burned and turned alit all inside her,
I don’t know why she swallowed the candle.
Oh what a scandal. 

There was an old lady who swallowed a tree.
Just ate it right up, she did with glee. 

She swallowed the tree to flame the fire.
She swallowed the metal for something to do.
She swallowed the wood for the match to handle.
She swallowed the match for the fire she grew that burned and turned alit all inside her,
I don’t know why she swallowed the candle.
Oh what a scandal. 

Her belly pain grew as the fire got bigger,
So she thought up an idea and fixed her fedora
She gave a biiiiiiig cough and out came a menorah!!

 But the pain lingered on and she wasn’t sure why,
So she dug down deep while the feeling got bolder,
She let out a big buuuuuurp and out popped a candle holder!! (A Kinara for Kwanzaa) 

Finally still, she felt quite the tickle,
But then from the pain she was finally free,
Cause one more sneeze and she let out a Christmas tree!
