Analogies

For homework my 11 year old had to complete a page of analogies. They were quite simple and the list of words needed to complete them was included. I decided she needed to be challenged so for most of them I denied her access to the list of words. I can really only remember the first one for some reason which was Heart is to Red as Sun is to ? At the end she had to make up her own analogy. Together we tried to come up with something original and finally decided on Bellybutton is to Lint as Toe is to Jam .

We're still walking around repeating our creation and giggling about it.
