Adages and Sayings for Bits of Wisdom

Draw "Story Pictures" and learn about wise sayings and adages, such as "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb" or "Little strokes fell great oaks" or "As you sow, so shall you reap."

We have a list of over 50 adages that help children learn about messages, morals, or ideas conveyed through sayings. These are often heard throughout life or referenced in literature, publications, and media.

Discuss these 50+ adages with your children and see if they have others they'd like to add to the list. Or maybe they'd like to invent their own adages or sayings.

Encourage your children to select their favorite sayings and draw "story pictures" depicting their favorites. Allow them to be as imaginative and creative as they'd like with this activity.

As your children draw, remind them of this saying: "A picture is worth a thousand words!"

See our List of Adages -- and have fun learning bits of wisdom about life!

Happy homeschooling!
