Rory’s Story Cubes are fantastic for traveling. I just picked up Rory’s Story Cubes Actions last weekend. They come in a box the size of a deck of cards, and has nine rolling dice in them with different pictures. You roll the dice and based on the pictures come up with a story to tell. Rory’s Story Cubes comes in the Original with more nouns, and Actions. You can combine both together.
One could of course just make up stories without the aid of Rory’s Story Cubes. But for $7 it helps to get the juices going. Plus, Veda loves to roll the dice around- that in itself is a fun little game for her. She also loves to just learn the names of the actions or pictures on the dice. Combine the storytelling with finger puppets and you have the perfect recipe for fun with a toddler.
For now while Veda is still young it’s a great way to get the creative juices going for me to make up fun stories to tell her and lay the groundwork for using the imagination. When she is older I imagine her and her future siblings-to-be will have fun entertaining themselves on road trips or plane trips for some good clean creative fun.
