Storytelling aids: Rory’s Story Cubes

I can’t help it.  Any time I see something that involves building a story, I’m irresistibly drawn to it.  That’s what happened to me a couple of years ago when I was Christmas shopping on Amazon.  (Yes, I do.  You know you do, too.)  Somehow Rory’s Story Cubes popped up somewhere on the screen, and the next thing I knew, I was tossing them in the cart as a stocking stuffer.  Best. Impulse. Purchase. Ever.

Have you seen these?  They aren’t new, but I worry that you might have missed them.  Well, okay, I don’t worry.  I hate worrying.  But I really want you to check them out.

See the little dice?  See the pictures on each side of the dice?  You just roll them, look at whatever pictures come up, put them in any order you want, and tell a story with the pictures.  It’s the world’s easiest game.  I mean, my husband would argue that it isn’t a game because no one wins.  Fair point.  But, it is fun.  And my kids will take turns telling stories with it for quite a while.  They even bring it out when their friends are over.  Plus, I’m pretty sure if you thought about it for a while, you could find a way to add points and have a winner.  In fact, I’ll get working on that.  (Not really.  I’ll actually make my seven-year-old work on that.)

Anyway, Rory’s Story Cubes.  They come in three varieties!  Three more reasons to tell a story today!

Nope, I wasn’t paid or given anything to endorse this product.  I just think it’s great.
