Story Box



Use already-made  boxes or boxes that Cubs have made themselves., let their imaginations go!  A Storytelling Box can also be done individually or as a group. It is a special box into which the following kinds of items, or combinations are placed:

Small, smooth stones (or ceramic squares) onto which words, signs or symbols are painted, or written on.

Small, unusual objects (e.g. toys, things from nature, household items, small bits of clothing, coins, and so on).

Slips of paper or flat sticks with words or pictures on them.

Cubs work in groups of 3-5. The Den Leader can start off with a beginning, then allow one of the group members to "set the stage", or leave it completely up to the individual storyteller from the very start. 

The first Cub begins by drawing out an object from the box without looking (the element of surprise makes it more interesting!) . The drawn item must be used sequentially in the story and stays out of the Box until the story is finished; i.e. it can't be put back into the box and exchanged, or saved until later in the story, or used again.

The story continues until such time as the Cub becomes "stumped", and pulls out another object.  This process continues until the Cub determines that the story is finished.
