This is a roll an idiom, spin an idiom activity and writing worksheet resource. Great for class lessons, writing centers or small groups. The idioms included are… I'm all ears, when pigs fly, time flies, sick as a dog, walk on eggshells, raining cats and dogs, piece of cake, in the same boat, hold your horses, head in the clouds, frog in the throat, fish out of water, cry over spilled milk, cold shoulder, can of worms, butterflies in my stomach and apple of my eye.
