How can I use Scary Story Dice?
They can be used in the classroom as writing prompts for group activities. Families can use them as a fun conversation starter at the dinner table or family game night. If you are looking for a non-candy “You’ve been boo’d” gift for your neighbors they would be fun to leave on your neighbor’s porch. They also make great Halloween party favors. Best of all they are great for all ages.
Story Starters are great because…
Scary story dice build on writing and communication skills while encouraging creativity, imagination, humor and silliness. Some skills they develop are: literacy, word associations, teamwork, verbal communication and listening skills.
Remember to encourage your child to build on their stories with details and using lively verbs and adjectives.
Suggestions to get your stories started:
A few ideas for story settings are: haunted house, farm, corn maze, cemetery, school, neighborhood trick or treating.
We made two different sets to test them out:
First Set- Halloween stickers and sealed the wood cubes with Mod Podge.
Second Set- Painted the wood cubes (dice) with white paint then used Halloween stamps and black ink. We also sealed these with Mod Podge.
Both turned out great!
Our Halloween Think Book is another creativity and educational Halloween activity, which includes prompts and activities to get kids thinking. It can be purchased from my Teachers Pay Teachers store or from ThinkingIQ’s shop. You can learn more about the Halloween Think Book here.
