A swan of bees

SwanofbeesFor this warm up, in each line write an fanciful combination. Keep going for 10-15 minutes.

The following examples were all done by children who didn't feel constrained only to combinations that make sense. :-)
swan of bees
sailboat of water
pajamas of oranges
book of stripes
kiss of babies
skeleton of discovery
blackboard of moons
swimming pool of doorknobs
hat of laughs
If you want, you can use templates like:

"I once saw ..."

or

"I wish I had ..."
