This activity is a fun way to develop your child's literacy skills and encourages them to be as imaginative as they like. They have to create a story with the aid of the comic strip boxes. They can choose which characters to place in each box and decide what to write in each speech bubble. You might need to help them with some cutting, but leave the ideas and lay-out of their story to them.

How to extend the magic

Make up your own story together. Think of a main character for your story (it could be a person or an animal) and make up some crazy adventures - the sillier the better!
