Story Cards

You Will Need:

Large index cards, magazine pictures, other funny card pictures

Directions:

Work with your child to create story cards by gluing pictures from magazines or old greeting cards onto the index cards. Explain to her that you are going to make up a story about them. Start by asking her questions like: “What do you think happened here?”; “How do you think this person (or animal) feels?”; “What are they doing?”; “What will they do next?” Help out a little if needed.

Tip:

Simple pictures of people making funny faces or in unusual situations make for good stories. Try to use a variety of images.
