Do your children need help with story ideas?

A friend sent me a link to the Scholastic Story Starters web page. Your children clicks on four buttons and the web site randomly generates ideas for stories. Here are a couple examples:

Describe the secret wish of a brainy venus flytrap who has to save the world.

Write a one-sentence postcard to a silly hen who lives on the Moon.

Describe a day in the life of a powerful avocado who collects stamps.

Pretty fun.

You are welcome.

I was a bit surprised by how addictive it was. I kept clicking several times. It was fun to see the variety of story ideas.
