Ingredients: Paper and pen. With your child, make up a character and give it a name.
Next write a few lines about "who" the character is. Fold the paper down just below your writing to hide it from the child, then ask her to write a sentence about "what" happened to the character.
Then have her hide her sentence by folding it down again and then you write about "when" and then she writes about "where". Finally let your paper unfold and let the child read the zany story aloud!
