5 out of 5 stars


These are cards with pictures on them with characters, settings, and objects in outer space. You can create your own imaginative story using the cards to guide your story. There are aliens, spaceships, astronauts, and even a hamster. You can use the cards to solve problems. If the astronauts are hungry, there is a card with food on it. If the cockpit is on fire, there is a fire extinguisher card. If an astronaut gets injured, there is a medical kit. But what can we do when the hamster escapes into outer space?

I love that there are many ways to use these cards. You can keep it extremely simple or make it complex. You can look for opposites, solve problems, make the characters interact, or just imagine a silly story. There is even a search-and-find activity to look for a green bug on some of the cards.
This is a wonderful way to teach children about story structure, and get those creative juices flowing! You can also have older children write out their stories or draw additional cards to add into the plot. You could even act out the story and make costumes!

The cards are sturdy and made with thick paper. Each one is color coded as red for characters, yellow for the scenes, and blue for objects in the story.

These cards will be so fun to use with little kids, and offer up hours of fun and imagination!
