Here’s a hands-on storytelling activity to help you and your friends spin a terrific tale.
Find a stick and decorate it with paint, yarn, feathers, wire, beads, or anything else you can find.
Now sit in a circle with your family or friends and start to tell a story. You could say, “Have you heard the story about…” or “Once upon a time there was…” Now pass the stick to someone else in the circle.
The only person allowed to speak is the one who is holding the Story Stick! Keep passing the Story Stick around and keep adding onto the story. Let your imagination run wild. It’s fun to see where the tale will go!
