Hey!....take a look at how much fun this activity is. *grin*

P.S. I think even cats can do this one.

Wonderful idea! I did this with my 5 year old daughter this morning and she got the hang of it straight away. She had done a zig-zag scribble, which she then decided was a dragon with sharp teeth. She drew the top teeth and added eyes. She was very quick to make up a story about the dragon, who (according to Linsey), breathed yellow fire and then grew multi-coloured fire-hair. He wasn't a very friendly dragon, but he couldn't hurt fairies!
Thankyou for such a brilliant idea - can't wait to try it out on my 10 year old when she comes home from school!
Best wishes, Lynda

P.S. Linsey is still adding to the scribble story - the dragon has now grown pink ears and is now a girl dragon because she has added bows in the dragon's fire-hair!

Thanks Lynda..... now reverse the process and you do the scribble and let your partner tell the story adding the art details. You will be so surprised what they see in your scribble.

Glad you enjoyed it. I play almost everytime I have children around that cooperate.

What a great idea.
I think i will try this with my little girl, only i dont know how that will go over as she has a tendency to want a new piece of paper when ever she "messes up"

Re: Scribble Story: Freeing The Creative Spirit

What a great idea! I teach PreK 4 and this sounds like a wonderful idea to use for a group story.. we can pass the paper around and each person can add to the story as they add to the picture! Thanks!
