Rory’s Story Cubes

January 5, 2012

Written by Contributing Writer, Sarah Farthing

My Aunt and Uncle sent us Rory’s Story Cubes this Christmas.  I had never heard of them and let me just tell you how fantastic they are!

The product description explains: “Rory’s Story Cubes is a pocket-sized creative story generator, providing hours of imaginative play for all ages. There are infinite ways to play with Rory’s Story Cubes – Try them as a party game or ice-breaker, for literacy development, speaking and listening skills, creative inspiration, a mental workout or problem solving. Anyone can become a great storyteller and there are no wrong answers. Simply roll the cubes and let the pictures spark your imagination.”

I have my 4 year olds roll the dice (9 in total) and use the pictures in any order to generate a story.  They learned in about two days how to form their story with a beginning, middle and an end.  We talked about plot, characters, themes, etc…   This has been a wonderful tool for their imaginations!

Every time we get them out (which they suggest often), I think of new uses that would be just right for Story Cubes.  The Story Cubes fit in my purse and would be perfect to pull out at a restaurant while we wait for our food.  These would be perfect in a classroom for all ages- they could help spur and develop creative writing in high school students and first graders alike.  Can you imagine being able to answer “Get the Story Cubes!”  every time you hear “I can’t think of anything to write!!”

These were such a fun, unique gift and have quickly become an important tool for me as much as a fun game for our whole family.

    I may be picking this one up! Another great, portable, not too noisy game is Scrabble Flash. My son received it as a Christmas gift, and I love it, too! Only 5 parts, plus the case, so it will be added to our packing list for camping trips.
