A good word game

You and your kids have probably played the word game "Fortunately, Unfortunately," where players come up with positive and negative statements to create a story. For instance, one player might start with "I ate a sandwich." The second player adds, "Unfortunately the sandwich had slugs in it." Then the third player says, “Fortunately, I am a bird and love eating slug sandwiches," and so on. It can be quite a hilarious pastime for a group of friends or family members.

Introduce your kids to this game if they haven't already played it, and then play a few rounds. Make it as silly or serious as you like. Notice how such a game prompts your kids to be spontaneous and creative in their use of words and putting a story together. This is also a great activity to inspire reluctant writers.
