Creating a group story is a fantastic way of getting everyone involved in an activity that encourages imagination and ideas!
Collect some random objects: marbles, a pair of glasses, an odd glove, various food packaging, a garden pot, bits and bobs from a charity shop.
Place the objects in a bag or box and ask residents to take one object out at a time. Then ask the residents to add the object to the story they’re creating.
Take another object and continue the story. Don’t worry about the story being wacky or nonsensical. The key is to include all residents who are keen to take part, and all the objects.
Write the story up afterwards and read it back to the group so everyone can hear the story they’ve helped create!
