Story Idea - Gifts Shared at a New Home

Small, feathered creatures make their way into a new pond. In order to feel welcome, they bring a few gifts for their new neighbors. Each treasure is specially selected for each new friend. The ducks listen to each story and find out who represents each prize.

Choose the gifts. Choose the new friends. Choose the location or view of the new lake. Connect each topic to a part that is important to your overall meaning and storyline. Connect each new friend to the location itself and its history.

In case, you didn’t see it in the brief context, this story should be geared toward children. So, keep the words simple. Keep the story focused. Remember to include a moral, a value, and a message with your story. Children learn much through stories and rely on them to help create memories for their long awaited future. Decide on the story, and write. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
