Ways to Play
Play 1 on 1
Let your little one flex their creative muscles in single player play. Place the cards face down and have your child select 6 cards at random (this number can be adjusted as needed). Once the cards are selected, give your child a couple of moments to begin the creative process. When you all are ready, have them begin to tell you their creative story. The story should include each of the elements on the cards drawn.
Looking for a group activity or ice breaker? Have your group of players tell a collaborative story where each player adds a new line to the tale based on the cards in their hands.
Place the cards face down and have all participants select 6 cards at random. This number can be adjusted as needed as larger groups may need to use a smaller amount of cards per player. Once the cards have been selected, give the players a few moments to familiarize themselves with their cards.
Have the first player begin the story telling 1-2 sentences that incorporates a figure from one of their cards. Have the other players add to the story in the same fashion, going around until all of the cards have been used.
