Dinnertime Storytelling Prompts #40-43

By Jennifer L. Davidson

Looking out my window, I see the first signs of spring: robins, cardinals and woodpeckers shuffling between branches in the large maple tree. It makes me want to scream with joy! But if I did, the dog would panic and our kitten would be in my face curious about my reaction. Have some fun with these prompts, and enjoy the first signs wherever you live!


For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.


#40 - Katelyn couldn't wait to go outside and enjoy what the weatherman said was the last day of sunshine. She was also trying not to panic, unlike her parents who were scavenging the last bits of supplies from stores. Tomorrow it was predicted that the sun would disappear and life as we knew it would be forever changed. Why does the sun disappear? How does the family survive? When and where does your story take place?


#41 - Betsy Bear is frantic that she's overslept again this year. She likes being the first one out of hibernation because being first is what she's good at. But Barney Bear always wants to ruin it for her. He's made it his life's mission to make her miserable and she can't figure out why. Why is Barney Bear out to get Betsy Bear? What is their history? What does Betsy Bear do to solve her problem?


#42 - Using the five senses, describe what you consider a perfect spring day.


#43 - A fairy appears while your family is eating dinner and offers to grant everyone one wish. BUT, the wish will only last for one hour. AND, you have one minute to make your decision. Start a timer at the table and give everyone one minute to think of a wish!
