Story telling has been around since the beginning of time and kids love to make up stories.Even in an age of electronic media that the joy of telling or hearing a good story doesn’t have to become a lost art.
Spend time reading aloud to your kids. It’s a great way to capture a child’s imagination and get their creative juices flowing. A timeless tale can usher kids into a world that’s far more vivid and exciting than any movie or game.
You might also try making up stories together. Come up with some characters and a basic plot and then let them decide what happens. You’ll be amazed by what kids come up with once you get them going.
