SHAKE N BAKE Story Ingredients

Make small cards in five different colours.
Each colour is for one of five categories noted below.
Write words for each category, a single word on each card.
Each child selects five different colour cards and tries to use the five words collected
in an interesting/unusual sentence.

Could a sentence be the starting point for a story, or even a piece of surrealist art?

The happy sailor was jumping about the desert searching for a computer!
The ghost was overwhelmed by the solids walking around the lighthouse with scissors!
The waiter was quite cheerful as he played the bagpipes underwater while swimming!

  1. Great idea Michael, I'm going to use it today for my art class. We're designing fantasy puppets for a puppet show. These will be a great way to develop the story and backgrounds. I'll let you know how it goes.
