Write a Story:

What You'll Need

  • Paper or scrapbook
  • Pencil, colouring pencils, felt pens or crayons
  • 60 mins
  • Ages 4 - 8
  • Inside
  • Not a Speck
Once upon a time there was you!
You were looking for something to do,
I said “Write a story that’s full of laughter”
And we all lived happily ever after!

Encourage your child to draw pictures about family events or excursions and keep them in a special. Anyone can tell a story. You just have to stop and think for a while, to let your imagination go to work. What Boxie likes to do is to draw the pictures for his story first, then he gets a grown up to write in the words underneath.

Getting Started:

  • What are you going to draw for your story? Who’s in it? Your family? Your friends?
  • What happens in your story? Do you go on an adventure? Is it something you really did? Or are you going to make something up?
  • Boxie drew a story about his family’s trip to the moon – it didn’t really happen but it was a great story!


And you don’t have to do it all today. Keep a folder or scrap book and you can come back for NEXT WEEK’S EXCITING INSTALMENT OF …… YOUR STORY!
