  • Print the PDF in colour on single sheets.
  • Cut out all the cards (Optional step: laminate to make the paper sturdier).

  • The youngest child starts by taking the card from the top of the pile and beginning with “Once upon a time…”. They then incorporate the picture on the card in their story.
  • The next child continues the story by picking up the next card on the pile and so on. You can even join in!
  • Place the cards in a line as the story develops so they can visually see the sequencing.
  • At the end when all the cards have been used up encourage your child/children to retell the story, using the cards as prompts.
