Enrich your connection with others by using this sixth set of suggestions for a creative story-telling game.
From “Silly” to “Creative”
Back on February 28 of this year, I gave you the first post of a game that helps you create stories for your children, grandchildren, and friends. Approximately every two weeks you are given about 6 pictures, a place, a sound, and a phrase with which to tell a story using the names of family and friends.
To learn more about this relationship game, go to the top of the page and read the first story and see the other posts.
Bookmark that page and then, when you are at a restaurant with children who have their noses buried in their iPhones, etc., whip out your own device and go to that page and start a conversation. Before the food arrives, you will have had a good time using these suggestions for creating fun.
NOTE: Originally I had called this feature “Silly Stories.” Now, since I don’t think they are silly so much as they are creative, I am changing this to “Creative Stories.”
When you use the following
set of pictures for your conversation game,
be sure to include these words:
“That’s when she opened the umbrella.”
Let me know how you have used this silly game. If you want to share the story, I will print it on the blog.
