“Giraffe Challenge” by Monty Edwards

Leave a comment

Can you draw a tall giraffe,

Followed closely by her calf?

Make this mother twice as tall

As the calf, who’ll still be small.

Please be sure their necks are long:

No-one likes to get that wrong!

Give them spindly legs: quite thin,

Next put markings on their skin.

Make the ground beneath them flat;

Add some grass to go with that.

Not too lush though – rather sparse:

Let the earth show through the grass.

Each giraffe should face a tree

Where the leaves they eat will be.

Can they reach those leaves to eat?

Then your picture is complete!
