Story Box Making

Story Box Making

Story Box Making 1

Making a story box is a way of encouraging children to re-tell stories, or of making up their own stories about a particular theme.


For a story box you will need:

A shoe box (with one side cut down so that it opens flat)

Coloured paper, tissue paper or fabric (to make an interesting background)

Paint or crayons

Small toys and other small objects


When the box has been made you can use it to tell a story, like The Night Pirates if you choose a Pirate theme. Then you can have fun making up your own stories!
