Practice Paint Sample Storytelling
Telling a story is like painting a picture, using words instead of paint. In this cooler-than-average writing activity, your child uses paint and words to write a story! Well, not actual paint, but paint samples. Paint samples often have unique and interesting names such as Western Sand, Beach Basket, and Mermaid Tear. These names make the perfect story-starters to inspire creative storytelling. He may already be picturing a California beach picnic interrupted by a crying mermaid—what a story!
What You Need:
- Pen and paper (or computer)
- Collection of paint color sample cards with interesting names (free at most paint and hardware stores)
