Story Telling Games with Many Possibilities in Therapy

storytelling-therapy-sessionsImagine a simple game made of cubes which has little drawings on them. This game can not only be used to create unique stories, but also get kids to come out of their shells. The game is Rory's Story Cubes, and the original version has nine cubes with six different pictures on each one. To play, you roll the cubes and use each picture to help tell a unique story. The beauty of the game is that each person may see the cube slightly different. One person may see a man, but another may see someone running. The game has become so popular that there are now a wide variety of add-on sets. There are Rory’s Story Cubes set which focus on voyages, actions, and fantasia. In addition to this, there are currently a dozen mini three cube “mix it up” sets to add on to the other sets.
