For ages 5+

This week, storytellers Sarah Rose and Ruxy show you how to create your own exciting stories using everyday objects. Even the most seemingly dull items have their own special story to tell! Find out where your object is from, what magical secrets it holds and what it would say if it were a person.

For this episode you’ll need a pen or pencil, paper and random objects - anything at all!

Theatre makers Sarah Rose Graber and Ruxy Cantir lead a series of interactive videos about how to create and tell stories at home. Imaginations will be unleashed and stories created from everyday surroundings.From using different story structures and bringing characters to life to discovering new and exciting ways to engage with the objects at home, each new episode will result in at least one original tale to share with friends and family.
