How to play with your story cubes

Your child starts by rolling all four story cubes. They then use the four pictures that they see to build a story. They can tell any story they like as long as they find a way to weave in the characters and items on their story cubes along the way.

Here the cubes have thrown up a toadstool house, a dragon, a wizard and a magic key. Already you can see how your child’s imagination will start working as they think of a story to tell.
