The benefits of reading to our children and encouraging them to read on their own are well known. Those same benefits are expanded even further when children create their own stories. In this DIY activity, children of all ages can use their natural creativity to invent a story or express themselves by telling a story about their own experiences.
Active engagement with others and our surroundings shapes the brain, opens the imagination, and invigorates the soul. Come play with us this summer at these great community events!
