Day 20 of our 101 Days of Summer Fun for Kids:
We have been spending quite a bit of time in the car — and sitting outside waiting as we go back-and-forth between summer recreation activities. This is one of our time-fillers!
- Two or more people
1) Have one person choose a topic and say a sentence or two to start a story. For instance, “A little girl was out in the woods taking a walk when she came to the door of a teeny-tiny house ….”
2) The next person adds a few sentences to the story. If you have older children, you could write out the story and have each person add a sentence or two before passing it on. We have just been sharing our story verbally.
3) Continue to add to the story as time (and interest) allows!
The girls love this most when we make up super-silly stories! I do try to model using descriptive language, picking a setting for the story, and forming a plot with a problem and resolution.
