So glad the Snail Mail Game Show is creative as ever and ready to share the results! For Round 15, the participants received a piece of paper with the outline of a whale’s blow hole spout and the prompt, “We tell the story of Jonah who supposedly survived inside the belly of a whale for three days. What other magical lands could be inside a whale that we don’t know about? Share what you think we’re missing inside this close-up of a blowhole’s spout!”
“A Blow Spout Of Live Adventures” – Look at all this loveliness that goes unnoticed in the belly of a whale, and likely in so many other aspects of our lives! What a beautiful reminder to keep our eyes peeled for the good in life.
Coloring out the lines, Elizabeth drew an entire bright blue whale with interactive parts! See the slides? She says, “Inside this whale is all of nature,
calling us all in to come play in the vast green-ness of the world. Explore!”
“Epic Blowhole Battle!” Who knew so many superheros and villains were hiding out inside whales? I had no idea. We need to explore more, you guys. How else are we going to find Carmen San Diego? And Batman?!
“Welcome To Comfy Land!!! Food, Fashion, Fun: Something For Everyone; All Are Welcome” Wow! There’s a whole mini festival/city going on inside this glittery whale! I love the good vibes surrounding everything, and the ongoing open invitation.
And the winner of Round 15 is … a tie! Between Whitney and Elizabeth! I will be sending them a prize via snail mail.
