Surviving Arsenic Hour: Part 3 Storybook Endings

Sunday, March 11, 2018

This is a recent development in our home, and an idea that I got while visiting with my nephews.  They have a stack of simple, homemade books and an array of fun art materials and they will spend hours creating their own storybooks.  The results were inspiring, and inspired me to implement the activity in my own home.  My 6 year old has no interest in writing, he seems to actively dislike it.  We struggle to get him to write anything- except letters to his cousins and these books.  He's taking ideas and story lines he's already telling me about, or playing out with his toys, and putting them down on paper.  It's wonderful for writing practice, spelling, understanding story elements and so much more. Sometimes the best ideas are, blessedly, also the easiest.

Step 1: Pre-make the books.  Construction paper on the outside and a few sheets of blank, lined or otherwise prepared white paper, stapled or taped together.  Viola.  Magic waiting to happen.

Step 2: Stock up on writing materials. Kids love exciting writing supplies, think sparkles, invisible ink, etc. The supplies we've had good luck with are colorful, fun and good for writing. Here are some of our favorites:


Step 3: Have some writing prompts ready.  Just in case your little writers need a boost getting started. Here are some great sources and already developed prompts to help you along:
