Anyone up for a Creative Kids Challenge?

StoryChallenge

Are you an adult interested in inspiring children to be creative? There is a place for you to connect with other like-minded adults on G+ – the Creative Kids community

Are you an adult interested in inspiring children to be creative? I challenge you to facilitate or act as a mentor in this creating with kids challenge that I have started in the G+ Creative Kids community.

Anyone interested in a bit of a creating with kids challenge?


I challenge you to act as a mentor/facilitator to help your child share a story.

Your story project can be as simple or as complicated as you like -
your child might want to tell a new story,
you might record a story they have invented during imaginative play,
your child might want to retell a favourite story or nursery rhyme.

Choose a tool to share the story with the Creative Kids G+ community.  You could
- record the story as a movie
- record your child's voice telling a story
- make a puppet show
- write a sticker story, make a book or draw a picture
- use a computer or ipad to make a story with programs/apps like Storybird (http://storybird.com/)  or Puppetpals (https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/puppet-pals-hd/id342076546?mt=8)

Once your story is ready, share a link to the story or a blog post about the story in the Creative Kids community using the hashtag #creativetable

(BTW, you can find me here on G+ – by far my most active social networking account)
