POEM: “Home”

Here’s a great poem to use as a launching point to create
your own family poem about HOME!

Read the poem together and then let each member of the family (including Mom and Dad) create their own stanza.   Consider upping the “legacy moment” of this activity by asking Grandma and Grandpa to participate?

All you need to do is to finish the sentences:

“When I think of ‘home’ I think of  ___?___

When I think of ‘home’ I think of butterflies
When I think of ‘home’ I think of bumblebees

When I think of ‘home’ I think of hummingbirds
When I think of ‘home’ I think of sun brewed tea
When I think of ‘home’ I think of morning walks
When I think of ‘home’ I think of Grandma and me

When I think of ‘home’ I think of hidden trails
When I think of ‘home’ I think of lullabies
When I think of ‘home’ I think of signs of spring
When I think of ‘home’ I think of pumpkin pies

When I think of ‘home’ I think of bedtime stories
When I think of ‘home’ I think of I think of honeysuckle
When I think of ‘home’ I think of roses blooming
When I think of ‘home’ I can’t help but chuckle

Because when I think of ‘home’ I think Heaven
When I think of ‘home’ I think of all that’s kind
When I think of ‘home’ I think of dancing
When I think of ‘home’ Grandma comes to mind
