This simple idea is lots of fun, encourages imagination, teaches oral language and literacy skills and results in a special home-made book your child can treasure for years to come.

All you need is a smart phone or a camera.

The child helps to take photos of their favourite toy/s in little activity scenes such as eating breakfast, watching television, making a mess in the bathroom and sleeping on the couch. Be creative – you can search the internet and use “Elf on the Shelf” ideas to inspire your own scene creations if you want.

You and your child can print the pictures out and stick them into an exercise book or display folder to tell a little story. Alternatively, you could tell the story while scrolling through the photos on your phone or camera. An app that can also be used to create these stories on your phone or iPad is Little Bird Tales.
