Summer Story Starters

The best thing about our story starters is that the kids can take the stories in any direction they choose. Give two different children the same summer story starter, and who knows what might happen! It might also be interesting to re-present the same story starter a year later and see how your child has developed over the period. But however you use them, children find our story starters fun!
