Here is a Moffle Story Mountain to inspire you to create some stories together!
Start at the beginning – who is your main character & where are they?
Then comes the build-up – what is happening & why? What does the main character want? What are the problems or obstacles in the way?
Followed by the climax – what happens to make things get worse? How can your character be strong and steady like a mountain? How do they feel?
Then the resolution – What choices does your character make? How do they overcome the problem they faced?
Lastly, the ending – how does it end? What does your character learn?
You can add to the fun & creativity using story spoons. The Moffle story spoons are the characters from Tippy Moffle’s Mirror, but you can create any characters you want to. The only limits are you & your child’s imagination & concentration span. You can improvise & role play – ask questions about what the characters might be feeling or thinking & create dialogues between them.
We all have a story to tell & as Phillip Pullman says, ‘After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world’.
