Whenever we come across a bridge, my little one and I like to play a fun game we call the Grumpy Old Troll courtesy of Dora the Explorer. If you’ve not had the pleasure of a Grumpy Old Troll episode on Dora, please let me clue you in. It’s a troll, who is very grumpy and very old, that makes poor Dora and her traveling partners solve his riddles before they can cross over his bridge.
It’s usually me that gets to play the Troll … ahem, no comments from the peanut gallery please … and ask the riddles, but this time he decided he was going to assume the position!
Who’s that crossing over my bridge? Trying his best to look like the grumpy old troll …
He makes a much cuter troll than I do, yet his riddles are much more difficult. Take for example, what’s pink and goes moo? Hmmm? He stumped me on that one, but I wasn’t too surprised when I found out the answer was a pink cow! It’s a fun game to play with your preschooler when at the playground, provided that you have the all-important bridge!
He doesn’t look too much like a grumpy old troll does he?
