We’ve made a set of story cards before (here) and we still play with them every now and again so I thought we could make a Halloween set of cards so we could tell some spooky Halloween stories this week.
Last time we made our story cards using a mix of some cut up birthday cards and some rather pathetic looking drawings but today I thought we could do some colouring as well so I printed out some Halloween colouring pictures from here. (All you need to do is select Halloween, the number of cards you want and select the black and white version so you can colour them in yourselves.)
We coloured in our pictures and planned to stick them to some cards (A4 size cut into quarters) except we couldn’t find the glue so we didn’t bother this time. Rather than show you our well coloured but slightly scruffy (because the kids cut their own out) version, here’s the ones we made last time:
We tidied up the mess (I’m mean like that) and then story time started….
All you do is shuffe the cards and take it in turns to take the top card and tell part of a story incorparating whatever’s on your card. When you’re done, shuffle the cards and there’s a completely different story waiting to be told.
