Children are eager to listen to fairy tales from parents. But how about involving kids by having them create a new story themselves? We guarantee it will be more interesting and entertaining. The guys from The Creativity Hub invented Rory’s Story Cubes. It’s very simple. The game consists of a set of cubes with images on their sides. These cubes are magic activators for your imagination. 9 cubes, 54 images create more than 10 billion combinations. It’s truly an infinite source of inspiration. Let’s get started.
The rules are easy. A player throws the cubes and then has to narrate a coherent story which links all of the pictures. There are no winners or losers here, just a lot of fun from stories and fantasy. The Story Cubes kick off your imagination regardless of age. For kids it’s brilliant training and development for language skills like storytelling, expanding vocabulary, speaking skill. For adults it’s just a good chance to rouse your mind with fantasy and have social fun.
