Squirrels Story Time Activity Badge

Squirrels Story Time Activity Badge

Story Time badge

Let your imagination run wild as you get lost in a story and see where it takes you.

How to earn your badge:

  1. When we hear stories, we can imagine going to different places and getting involved in lots of adventures. Choose a story to listen to with your friends and talk about it afterwards.

    You could talk about the adventure the story took you on, the main characters, what the characters did, and what you think could happen next. Did you like the story? 

  2. Stories can be about almost anything: people, animals, or magical creatures. What sort of stories do you like the most? Tell someone about your favourite story.

    You could bring the book with you, draw a picture of the best bit of the story, or even dress up as one of the characters.  

  3. Anyone can be a storyteller. Now it’s your turn to be in charge! Make up your own story and tell someone about it.

    It’s up to you how you tell your story – you could draw, find pictures using a computer or tablet, act it out, use your toys, or make costumes or props to bring it to life.
