Tip #15 Playing “What If”

Play “What if” with your child or students. For example:

* What if Mori heard Lito and Elvis planning his surprise birthday party. How would the story be different?

* What if the hunter had told Little Red Riding Hood that there was a wolf inside her grandmother’s cabin. What would be different in the story?

* What if instead of Snow White finding the home of the 7 dwarfs, she found a bridge that a family of beavers lived under?

Get the idea? See what great story tellers your little ones are, and remember to have fun.

"What if" games have so many applications for kids. You can teach them safety tips and so much else. I love those kinds of games.

That's a great way to get the kids involved and using their imagination!

And BTW - I remember visiting the Buc's stadium the year after their win and the nice manager of the facility gave us a private tour!

Sounds like a great game to play. I guess I need to do that with my characters!

Thanks for stopping by.
Christina you're right. This is a good way to teach many different types of things to our young ones.
L.Diane "What if" games are great ways to get those imaginations going. (private tour, cool!)
Katie, drop me a note about how this works out for you.
