Story blocks are all the rage and a fun way to get kids creating clever tales. Roll the blocks and come up with ideas for settings, characters, and actions that can become a writing prompt, a game of charades, or a funny bedtime story. These 20 blocks (1.25”) are color-coded with an image on each side; a red background is for people or animals, blue for things, orange for places, yellow for descriptions or emotions, green for actions, and purple for relationships. But this not just a set of blocks! A very amusing little book is included (5.25x5.25”, 143pp) and it gives you some ideas on how to use the blocks. The book goes over how to do an introduction, create a conflict, show motivation, write dialogue, and develop characters, organize a plot, and overall theme. It is not a course, but a fun way to get those creative juices flowing!
