Game: Story Circle

Together with your child/ children, you are going to create a story, saying one line each. The story starts with "Once upon a time there was... " Each player shares one line each until the story has come to an end.


Variation one: create three sets of cards with characters, locations and objects written on them. Put them into three separate piles or bags. Take a card from each pile. The aim is to include the character, object and location into the story. Variation two: As the adult, we want the child to be bringing the majority of the content to the story. When it is our turn, we can say a few words that lead the child onto their next sentence such as 'and then.. ' 'who.. ' 'next, the princess... ' Variation three: create a story using only one word each at a time
