"There was a unicorn that galloped at the mountain, then he saw the big dragon breathing fire, the dragon found the disappear potion and got it on the unicorn, and then he disappeared."
The artists of the Oak Tree group have recently been intrigued by the fantasy world of story telling, always creating new and improving stories. The most recent activity the kids found interest in was the story cubes, where you roll the dice, see what prompt you get, and create a story from the pictures shown on the cubes.
Some creators even decided to write out the stories they came up with on a piece of paper to keep, and to show their parents! The inner artist came out as soon as the stories were finished, as some decided to draw a picture of the story they made!
The artists loved the idea of being able to come up with their own fantasy stories with just a little help from the cubes, so they started to make their own. The educators put examples out and printed cutouts for them to create their own story cubes.
The storytellers imaginations ran wild as the ideas flowed out. They created beautiful drawings and even added text above the images to show everyone what they drew.
,Shortly after the story cubes were finished the artists were still hooked on the idea of story telling, so the educators came up with a new idea; The Prompt Jar!
The Prompt Jar was filled with creative words, with things like occupations, different foods and even all the planets! The creators had an amazing time trying to come up with stories out of the new and challenging words
Pirate, Mercury, Autumn
"Once there was an astronaut pirate who was flying around space, he flew to mercury and on mercury it was autumn! He kept flying around to find treasure then they went back to mercury! and they jumped back from mercury and they went down to their pirate ship, then they sailed off to find even more treasure!"
The storytellers of the Oak Tree group are always making new and exciting fantasy worlds with fun adventures and crazy twists, so stay tuned for more thrilling stories that these talented young artists can think up!
