Dinnertime Storytelling Prompts #72-75

By Jennifer L. Davidson

Sure, this summer might be different from years past, but that doesn't mean we can't still have fun. Go outside, start a new hobby, do something kind for a friend or neighbor, teach your pet a new trick, and, of course, take a few moments to tell or write an imaginative story.


For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.


#72 - Medusa carefully wrapped a towel around the snakes protruding from her head before leaving her mansion to spend a relaxing afternoon at the beach. She kept her eyes down as she searched for the perfect spot in the sand, but when a bug flew into her face, she jerked her head up and accidently met the gaze of another beachgoer. According to Greek mythology, what should happen next? Does your story have a different outcome?

#73 - Bean, the calico kitten, desperately wanted to go outside to chase the little moths that flitted just above the surface of the grass. Unfortunately, she never got the opportunity to sneak outside when her humans let Furry Beast out. But, while she napped for the sixth time that day, she dreamed she was a moth! What adventure does Bean have in her dream?

#74 - Tyla and Gino are 20 feet beneath the ocean's surface when they spy an object shimmering in the sand. Gino waves off Tyla and maneuvers his body to dive deeper. Tyla doesn't want to be left out and dives down too. When they're close enough to see what the object is, they both look at each other in awe. What is buried in the sand? Can they carry it to the surface? What happens next?

#75 - Abby received an art kit from her mom's weird friend, Verna, for her twelfth birthday. Not really the artist type, but bored out of her mind, Abby painted a picture of ants crawling over a plate of spaghetti. When she woke up the next day, beneath the easel was a real plate of spaghetti covered with real ants! She was both horrified and delighted at the same time. After cleaning up the mess, she sat down to paint... What does Abby paint next? Does it come to life? Does she call Verna for help? If so, what does Verna say to do?
