Hi Everyone!

Due to the recent stretch of snow days – I came up with a cool activity to do with my kid – a fun multi-scenario book, which inspires creativity and imagination.
The child gets to think of a story and characters and also draw and color the pictures that go with it. And as a result, they’ll have a book they are very proud of - that they can share with their friends and family.

The idea of my book is a story that splits into several scenarios, and each of those scenarios further splits into a couple more, which makes it fun to write and read.

Children 5 and up will enjoy this activity.

Go to "www DOT igrena DOT com SLASH PlatypusCrafts" to download a free PDF template, for a simple 12 page book.

Hi! You got such an excellent idea! My niece and I did something similar. We did came up with a story like you suggested, draw it, and organized it in a book just without splitting each scenario into a couple more. We had a blast, and we actually even did a unique voice over for each character in our book. So I totally love your idea, and it does develops kids imagination.

Also, I would like to tell about our experience being stuck in a house When we had a bad weather, I found an awesome kid's app. It's called 'Lazy Bird.' I am sure you can find other cool apps, but this one was my niece's favorite. So what we did is at first we just read a story, but then we amused ourselves with doing fun voiceover. Right in this app, we recorded our voices, and of course we let our imagination fly there I think we even made up our version of the story at the end, and now my girl plays it as a bedtime story. Pretty cool what you can do with technology now
