    1. glass container b) to knock or shake = JAR
    2. to observe closely b) a timepiece = WATCH
    3. yellow vegetable b) to crush = SQUASH
    4. fringe of hair b) a lould noise = BANG
    5. not heavy b) set fire to = LIGHT

    No fair! I didn't get a chance. :wink:

    (I don't know if I would have figured out bang, and I noticed jar sitting there before I decided to guess the rest.)

    This is a fun game. Maybe she'll give us some more of them.

    :wink:
