Three, Two, One...

Required:

  • Your time only

Does your child have a favorite number? Now's the time to turn that number into a story.

Ask your child to create a tale about a number. The story can be serious or silly, possible or improbable. It should feature the number in each sentence. Challenge your child to keep the story going as long as possible.

Alternatively, your child can start with one number and, with each sentence, increase the value by one. For example, your child might say, "Once upon a time there were three little pigs. Then four nasty wolves came to visit. This happened for five days in a row. Finally, on the sixth day…"

Or your child can begin the story with a larger number and decrease the value until the story ends. If your child decides to make Goldilocks visit the home of a hundred bears, the story might take quite a while to unfold.
