The story -
Two people at a tunnel.
They find a box
Dancing on the box.
There is a house with water around it
A great big lake
It rains into the lake
There is treasure in the lake
A little spider lives there
The two people find the treasure
"Argh, a spider!"
Some tips for writing stories with toddlers -
- Have the toddler start their picture and ask 'what's that'?
- Prompt your child with 'and then what happened?'
- At the end of the story ask your child about a detail from the beginning of the story, this will give the story a beginning and an ending. (I asked 'what did the two people people do?')
- Don't forget to write your child's name and age on the back!
This is a very simply, but fun activity which requires very little equipment.
Do your children write stories? I'd love to see some and appreciate your child's imagination as well.
