Today we spent time on the beach, it was very hot and during some quiet time in the shade (whilst Daddy bee was having a relaxing massage) we used the story cubes to create stories, here are the stories we wrote. We aren’t looking for prizes for novel writing here but wanted to share what you can come up with 12 random images on dice and 10-15 minutes of creativity!

Once upon a time there was a owl. The owl had a wand.
And the owl had a apple. It was a magic apple.
He used the want to make a dice. He played games with it.

The sheep said lets go and play with my arrows.

And the shark was crying.

Mummy Bee’s Story
As I was planning my trip to the mountain of smoke, as dice appeared at my feet. I had no idea where it has come from.
I went to the theatre that evening and found a postcard telling me to parachute onto the mountain and roll the dice.
The next day I flew to the mountain and found a pilot who would let me parachute. With just my dice, an apple and an arrow to hunt for food, I jumped from the plane and landing next to a sheep.
I took out the dice and rolled it. As I rolled it the sheep produced a magic wand which it waved. The green mountain started to change to the colours of the rainbow and it ended blue as the sea. A pool appeared and sharks were jumping from it.
The sheep told me to shake the dice again and a wise owl appeared, who flew down to my shoulder and asked me a question.
That question changed my life and I have never returned home. I can’t share the question here but the dice will go to the next person who needs it and they too will learn the question.

Molly Bee’s Story – The Magic Garden
When I was young, I went to a show. I watched an amazing actor perform, that show gave me courage. Thanks to that show I had the courage to unlock a door to a magic garden. The first thing I saw was a rainbow, at the end of the rainbow was an L sign, I looked around and saw a big acorn tree. Under that tree was a crocodile and a bee hive, there was a no feeding sign in the front. Soon the sunset and the moon rise, I was so tired but happy. In the morning I decided to stay there forever. I skipped off happily into the sunrise.
