Tic-Tac-Toe… Three birds in a row, Not a tick-tock clock, Or chatter cross-talk, Just a game you know, Tic-Tac-Toe!
According to Wikipedia, Tic-Tac-Toe is a game of three-in-a row so I created 3 birds in a row for Weird Bird Wednesday. It is also a British game known as Knoughts and Crosses, so I used the words, “not” and “cross” in the above verse.
Here are the materials I used for today’s birds, can you find these materials in my imaginary birds?
Gelli-printed paper (green) for the tree branch and gelli-printed maps in the bird’s beaks and Toe’s hat. I used the old sewing book for the bird’s bodies. And the children’s dictionary for the bird’s wings and tail.
Symbolism of the verse:
The wings on the first bird, Tic are from a clock illustration in the dictionary. It uses the symbolism of “O” for the game. The bird in the middle, Tac uses “X” for its symbol and I used a dictionary word, talk-a-tive, upside down on top of the bird’s beak for the word cross-talk which is British for chattiness. The dictionary checkerboard on its tail represents the symbolism of a game similar to this one. The “X” is a rubber stamp. For the last bird, Toe, I used an illustration from the dictionary of a tablecloth to represent the grid pattern used in the game, tic-tac-toe.
I hope you enjoyed playing along today!
Happy Creating! 🙂
