CocktailMom: Crafts, conscious living and life observations. Pour yourself a glass.
One of the recent toys in our house that I LOVE is Rory's Story Cubes. It's often hard to find a toy or game that can be enjoyed by a range of ages, and this is it! Wee ones love it, older kids who are tired of playing "baby games" enjoy it and it forces the adults to tap into their inner child. The rules are simple, there is no winner or loser- there is only creative thinking.
From the website:
Roll the cubes.
Begin with ‘Once upon a time’, and tell a story that links together all 9 face-up images. Start with the first symbol that grabs your attention. Rory’s Story Cubes® can be enjoyed solitaire or by taking turns with multiple players.
Remember there is no wrong answer, the goal is to let the cubes spark your imagination. It really is that simple!
I think every classroom should be equipped with this game. We have had hours of fun in our house creating stories and using the cubes to spark imagination for the kids and adults. This would make a great gift for anyone!
