A Story in a Bag

Have you ever wanted to climb inside your child's head and watch their imagination go and remember what that was like as a child?  

{This Little Project} has that kind of fun!

This is our Story Bag:


Want to play?

Each person takes a few items from the Story Bag.  

Then you take turns telling a story that uses those all your items.  

Of course, you could also take turns telling different parts of the same story and you have to add your item into the story. 

 {This Little Project} would also be great for a long car ride.

I picked up some shaped wooden pieces at the craft store, but we've also thrown in lego pieces, toy cars, dolls, etc.  You can put all kinds of things in the bag to make the Story Bag fit all kinds of ages.

Should I mention all the great language skills and thinking skills that this game strengthens...

{This Little Project} will make your imagination go wild!  And bonus: your child will tell you what is happening in hers.  Very fun and it turns out different every time!

What a great idea - having the physical prompts there can really help with remembering the words and the sequences in the kiddo's stories. I hope to link to this from my page - hope this is OK!
Cheers
