- Kids retell a well known story (such as a fairy tale, iconic film or much loved story)
- Kids describe a film which in its time would have been received much differently from now (so for example, my 8 and 6 year olds watched the B Movie 'The Blob' and found it absolutely hilarious, whereas when it was released in 1958 would have been seen as really scary)
- Play a game of 'consequences' with them where they add a part of the story in turn.
- Ask them to describe something, such as "where do bees go when it rains?" or "what does heaven look like?"
From this I will then make a short animation to bring their story to life.
Currently I have a sound recorder at home and I'm making recordings of my 3 children and some of their friends giving me their versions of the life, the universe and everything! Watch this space for the results...
