Review: Create A Story Cards

Ready to drop $10 on the most amazing kid activity ever?

Okay, okay, maybe that’s a touch dramatic, but truly, the Create a Story Cards from eeBoo (sometimes called Tell Me a Story) hit it out of the park! Every single time! My kids love them and I love that they spark imagination, laughter, and, of course, a good story!

Create a Story Cards are one of those open ended activities that spark imagination, grow literacy, increase vocabulary, and enhance comprehension. They’re practically like schoolwork… but much more fun! With story cards you can follow quite a few methods for playing – child led, adult led, or a mix. My 4 and 6 year old like playing together most of all. They lay all the cards face down and pick a “mystery” one to start the story. Based on the picture, they begin telling a story when they’re done, the next person draws a card and adds on something new to the story helping it grow and develop. They lay the cards out in a sequence and when they’re all done I usually get to hear the complete story… amidst huge belly laughs because their storytelling can be quite silly!

In each pack there is an instruction card with other ideas of how to put the cards to use, but truly, the sky is the limit! And I love that!

Here are a few other things worth knowing:

  • Tell Me a Story Cards are recommended for 3+, but I could see a verbal 2 year old loving them too, especially with the guidance of a parent or older sibling.
  • These cards are pretty sturdy (think high quality playing cards, but bigger) and come with a thick cardboard case with a slide out box for easy storage.
  • 36 cards are included in each set and there are 8 variations; something for everyone!

You can order Tell Me a Story Cards from Amazon or directly from eeBoo. I’ve also seen them in specialty toy shops before.

Want to see my other eeBoo favorite? And here’s another fun way to encourage kids to tell their own stories!
