Activity time: 10 minutes

- A notebook and pencil/pen (for adult use)
Preparation for Activity
- Be prepared with story suggestions.
- Designate a space for a large circle, preferably outdoors.
Description of Activity
Tell the children they will create a story together, one sentence at a time. One player starts and each child adds a sentence until everyone has had a turn and the story feels complete. This activity can be done over and over to create many stories.
If you are doing this activity outdoors, suggest that the children create a story about the nature they see around them.
Including All Participants
Be sure everyone has a chance to participate, especially those who are quieter.
