Story Cards

I had a great time teaching short sessions with story cards (prompt images drawn on index cards) at a local school today.

The kids had a grand time with my story cards and an even grander time making their own.

I was delighted by how they responded when I asked them ‘What is creativity?’ I was expecting them to say ‘Drawing.’ But instead they said ‘Making stuff’ and ‘having cool ideas’

Making stuff and having cool ideas – it’s a good way to spend your time.
