How to… make Story Cubes (& beautiful memories)

| November 5, 2010 | 224 Comments

Hello! Today I bring you a little “How to” that is very close to my heart: Story Cubes!? Can I do a bit of rambling first and then tell you how to make them? Pretty please!

As you know I do weekly book reviews on books that we are currently reading and adore. Books are fabulous for bonding. Books are fabulous for cuddling. Books are fabulous for developement (imagination, vocabulary etc etc). We love books. No doubt about it! Which is why I regularly bombard you with our book choice.!

A little bit about Story Telling

However, have you ever thought about the power of Story Telling? Storytelling has enourmous benefits shared with reading, but I believe takes these to another level:

1) Bonding

2) Bedtime wind down

3) Creative development

4) Learning the spoken word/ improved communication

5) Decision making skills & learning from mistakes

6) Reworking the day and feelings/ understanding your child better

7) Introducing family values and ideas

8- All of these have long term impact and even sets your child up with better “business skills” (believe it or not!)

Story telling is a two way process, bringing you closer together. Children are amazing natural storytellers and we have a wonderful opportunity to nurture this. Enough from me, I could write a whole essay!

Go visit Chris and her family at Thinly Spread and read her post “There is Nothing Better Than A Good Story” for more!

Story Cubes

Story telling is hard when you are out of practice. So I made some story cubes that I saw somewhere on my blog hop travels  to help me along the way (if you are said blog, please get in touch, so I can link up with you). They are so easy to use that I thought you may like to hear about them too. Basically, you “throw” them and then tell a story using all the images on the cubes. You can take turns developing the story, getting your child to say the next part of the story. You can make it harder by following a certain order. You can make it longer or shorter. You can rethrow your dice. Your choice! There are plenty of paper versions around, but I love these wooden cubes. They are tactile and they fit in a neat little bag and Red Ted loves playing with his! (you can of course make them out of paper and your kids can help colour things in and draw the images, but they won’t last “forever”. Here is a paper cube template. It does make for a nice rainy day activity “together”)

Materials: 6-8 25-30mm wooden cubes (available in craft stores like this one), Varnish, Paintbrush, Fine Marker Pen (approx. 0.7 nib), Acrylic Paint (optional if you want “colour” options).

1) Varnish the cube (this will stop the pen running into the grain) and let dry on a cookie rack. I touched up a couple of sides with a second coat, but strictly speaking one should do the trick! (thank you to @Kookoocachu @KezLewis @josordoni @icemaidencakes on advice on how to do this!!!)

2) Decide on some prompts: I found it useful to think of all the drawings first and to practice drawing a couple. Remember, it does not have to be an artwork your children will love whatever you draw. When I ran out of ideas (I did ours whilst my children were sleeping), I enrolled the help of my eldest for ideas of what to draw on the remaining cubes! It is useful to balance animals, with food/ drink, with colours (if you want to have some), with objects, with methods of transport – maybe have one of each per cube? Include some favourite things, for us this was a bunny and a train!

3) Draw your prompts!

Finished!

I LOVE giving these as gifts and they have been very well received and well enjoyed! Contact me through the comments and I can send you a PDF with some drawing ideas (and why not subscribe to my blog as a “Thank You”?).

I’ll post the results! Thank you again lovely lady.xxx

    A lovely idea. Such a nice way to tell stories to your kiddies.
    They look great too. Steve :-)

  20. Penny Scaffold says:

    I love these, this is such a fantastic idea. Would love to get Pix more involved with stories and the actual storytelling process, especially since the baby has come along bedtime stories are ‘our’ thing and very precious. Might do some with her friends on…I love the idea of giving them as gifts too! I’m not nearly as crafty as you so am not sure how mine will come out but will send you a pic if they’re not too embarrassing!!

  21. This idea is just right on the money. I have some younger grandchildren & this is now on my “to do” list. Thank you for sharing this with everyone.

  28. Giles Lane says:

    I designed a simple folding paper storycube format some years ago – no glueing required (which we also manufacture and sell in packs). Over the years we’ve used them in lots of projects, from storytelling workshops with adults and children to creative commissions by artists – there’s over 180 that can be freely downloaded and printed out here : http://diffusion.org.uk/?cat=9

    Last year Proboscis (the non-profit arts org I run) launched a free website, http://bookleteer.com, where you can upload your own images into our StoryCube template and print them out at home. We can also print & die-cut them professionally on card in short runs at low cost. We’re welcoming anyone to try it out as a simple way of making and sharing your own StoryCubes (you can also make downloadable books in our Diffusion eBook format with it).

  29. Nikki says:

  33. Ima says:

    This would be great for my husband who finds it hard to get our daughter to tell a story. Could you send me the PDF?

  34. Carolyn says:

    What a brilliant idea! I love reading and I’m hoping to pass my love of reading on to my daughter – she’s only 14 months but already enjoys story time. I think I might have to make these for her.

  35. This is such a great idea! I wish I had some for my kids. I am highlighitng this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com. Grab my “featured” button.

  36. Virginia says:

  45. These are awesome Maggy! I love them! What a fantastic idea! You could sell them. I loved story cubes when I was growing up :)

  46. Red Ted Art says:

    Aaaah thank you Luschka!! Have had a couple of people ask if I sell them… but they are not “perfect” enough :-( they will have to remain gifts!!! xx

  47. keri says:

    What a great idea – I’d never heard of story cubes until a few minutes ago. I was stuck for ideas for a little friend for Christmas…now I know just what her and her Mummy would appreciate (they don’t do noisy toys and luurrrve stories!). So, thanks for that. Please would you e-mail me your images for a little pictorial inspiration. Thanks a bunch :)

  48. Janet says:

    This is a fantastic idea and will be perfect for my 5 year old Neice for Christmas – Thanks so much for shring and I would love your ideas list :0) I am indeed following you too x J x

  49. margret says:

    Thank you.

  50. shilps says:

    I just happened to come across your blog while surfing and its an absolutely fab idea and I would love it if you could share the picture templates with me. Thanks a ton for sharing.

  51. Christine says:

    Just made these for my daughter. I can’t draw, so I printed and then modge podged them on. She loves them. See them here: http://confessionsofadiabeticbaker.blogspot.com/2010/11/on-roll-story-cubes.html

    Christine

  52. Jackie says:

    You are right. Storytelling can be so hard when you are out of practice. These will be great. Plus, I have boys. Having something to roll/throw ads to the excitement. We always need something to manipulate to keep them engaged!

  53. Michelle says:

    Oooh I love these…I am going to make a set for Emily and her friends for Christmas! I would love the PDF for some ideas :0)

  54. Jennifer says:

    I would love a copy of your PDF!

  55. Barbara Gini says:

    I love this idea! I use lots of storytelling, along with movement in my children’s yoga classes. Many of the children I work with have autism or other sensory processing challenges so this is a perfect way to make a visual prompt that will turn the process into a game! I absolutely love the simplicity and the versitility of these blocks! Thank you so much for your fantastic blog articles!

  56. Sue Rogers says:

    These are wonderful! I would love to make them for my grandchildren and teacher daughter-in-law. Could you send me the PDF? I also subscribed to your blog! Thanks so much!

  57. eva marie haep says:

    Great idea!!! I can’t wait to make some for my little ones.

  58. Karissa says:

    Oh, I would LOVE the PDF. I’ve had these on my to-do list for awhile now too. Thanks! And I’m subscribing now. :)

  59. Pam says:

    This is such an incredible idea! Thanks so much for passing it along.

  60. Amanda says:

    I would love your PDF please

  61. Louanne says:

    WOW! This is such a great idea. We are always making up stories, but this would be a great tactile way to do it.

  62. I found this post via Amy Lane’s blog, as I commented on her post, I saw Story cubes on tv a while ago and thought my kids would love them but I haven’t seen them in the shops. Never crossed my mind to make them, these look fantastic!

  63. Linda Meziere says:

    I am making several sets of these for kids and adults in the family. I can’t draw well so I am printing up small pictures and Modge-Podging them onto the blocks. I LOVE this idea. Thank you so much!

  64. julie says:

    Hey there, great idea could you send me the pdf. I’m a speech language pathologist and think this would be a wonderful gift to make my patients.
    TY

  65. Catherine says:

    Thank you for such a great idea. My toddler will love these. May even get her involved in the process of making them as she loves painting. Thank you.

  66. Elizabeth Mathis says:

    I just found your blog, I had never heard of story cubes before – they are so neat! Could you send me the PDF, I think my two girls would love me to make them a set.

  67. KateS says:

    Just stumbled across your blog and am very impressed as I’m always looking for new activities to do with my daughter, will be subscribing after I’ve finished this comment :) I love the idea of the story cubes – what a great way to aid a child’s development. I’m going to make some of these for my daughter to use in her daily ‘special time’ that we have together. Please could I have a copy of the pdf for drawing ideas. I’m going to make a special bag to keep them in too :) x

  69. Zahra says:

    Fantastic resource and so creative!Please could you send me the pdf. Would be greatly appreciated!:)

  70. Samus says:

    Lovely, lovely, lovely. I’ve been story telling with the special needs children I teach for several years and we’ve always used a selection of cards to get us started, but I think that everyone would prefer these and I can already see a topic of making our own sets. Can I have the pdf please. Thanks for a great idea.

  71. Jillian says:

    Hurray! Great idea ~ I can’t wait to get started on these!

  72. Dimpal says:

    Hi there, these story cubes look just wonderful – thanks for the inspiration and tutorial – you have a wonderful blog by the way!

    Please could I have a copy of the PDF for inspiration?

  73. Rachel says:

    These look fantastic my nephew has autism and i think these would help him as he is really struggling at the moment and the usual prompts on slips of paper dont hold his interest. he is also struggling with associating words with pictures im guessing you could put short word onto the cubes as well as pictures. Im not the slightest bit artistic are your really sure you dont want to start selling the cubes !

    can i have a copy of the PDF please.

    thank you

  74. Rob says:

    Oh my!!!! I was looking for a cheap seller of Rory’s Story Cubes and… You had the greatest idea! Why not involve my child in building our own cubes?!! Much more cheaper and fun! I don’t know if I’ll find some shop here in Italy where they sell wooden cubes to draw upon… but I’ll thank you forever if you could send me the pdf template all the same.

  151. Carolyn Hui says:

    Hello! Please do send me the pdf file! I bought a big bag of wooden cubes at a local thrift store years ago (where clothes are a dollar a pound and toys are 50cents a pound!) thinking “These should be useful for something someday!” And now I know what! Thanks so much!

      Wonderful, I do hope it helps him! And remember, you can start it very simply, by just putting together basic sentences and take it from there. One baby step at a time!

    I’d be happy to share all the ideas I just came up with, if there’s a way to post it or if the blog author sends me her email? I decided to do an animal cube (all 6 sides have animals), a feelings cube, a character cube, etc, so that if we roll all of them there is a variety of topics to choose from. Cool!!
