Today is Day 2 of ABCs4Play and we’ll be doing our call for B words shortly. Before we do, I want to thank everyone who helped us kick off this 26-day event yesterday. We received A words from Canada, the US, the UK, New Zealand and western Europe. Check the activity on Twitter at #ABCs4Play and in the comments to the ABCs for Play – Call and Answer post on PlayGroundology.

Our alliteration award for Day 1, A goes to @Childhoodlist1 for this contribution: active adventures are always awesome.

Tomorrow, we’ll see you on the B side.

  1. Here is a little poem around the letter F. I’ve only used one and two syllable words, with a little assonance thrown in for good measure …

    F is for …

    F is for fiction and fishing and fables
    Fledgling, fleecy, fleshy and fun.
    F is for flavour and flaccid and foetus
    Fracture, fractal, freakish and fop.
    F is for faded and fairy and faddish,
    Failure, faintly, Faroes and fudge
    F is for foment and forelock and foreman
    Furry, further, furtive and fool.
    F is for fuming and function and funding
    Foggy, feisty, family and foe.
    F is for friction and freezer and frenzy
    Frequent, freshly, frightful and frog.


    • Thanks David a wonderful tour de force in recognition of Playwords that begin with F. I”m sure this will be an inspiration to other #ABCs4Play players to limerick, sonnet and the such. Cheers, Alex
