It’s “National Tell a Story Day” on April 27!
According to holidayinsights.com “Tell a Story Day” celebrates story-telling of all kinds. It doesn’t matter if it’s fiction or non-fiction, a tall tale, or folk lore. It’s a day to tell ’em all. Stories can be from a book, other written material, or from memory.
Here are some ways you can celebrate with your child:
1. Go the Library. Find a new storybook to read tonight. Instead of going to the usual selection of books, choose a story that you loved as a child and share.
2. Share a Personal Experience. Kids love stories about when their parents were growing up. When was the first time you hit a baseball? What about the first time you attended summer camp, a ballet, or went on vacation with your parents? Tell your kids a story about the past.
3. Create Your Own Fairytale. Let your imagination run wild. Create a fairytale for your child by changing some of the pieces of the classics and give them a modern twist.
4. Your Child’s Friend Story. Do they have a favorite stuffed animal or doll? Together, draw and write or tell a story about its travels to your home.
