A curious porcupine hears, “Help! Save him!” . . . and it’s coming from the pantry? A forgetful robin flies into a car and gets separated from his family? What kid wouldn’t love to write a story filled with such intrigue, mystery, humor, or whimsy?
If you’re looking for a few fresh ideas to spark some creative storytelling in your kiddos, take a peek at our newest set in the growing line of StoryBuilders! For children of all ages, these fun writing prompts provide students with all the elements they need to create realistic stories or funny, far-fetched tales.
StoryBuilders are printable card decks that arm your kids with the basic elements of a story—character, character trait, setting, and plot. Our new World of Animals features animal characters including boa constrictor, bat, and porcupine.

These StoryBuilders have proven to be too fun and my kids don’t want to do anything else! Looks like math and science will be flying out the window today as we have already spent the morning writing from the cards. The boys are still at it! We are having a really fun day of creative writing. Thanks for giving us a boost!
