Telling stories with symbols

[~3years+]
Sitting opposite Master nearly4, we made up a story as we doodled along.  We drew some leaves and then thought about some jellyfish, so next we drew some seaweed next to the leaves, before we made a nest and some magpie beaks (sym…bol  for the magpies) and then back to the sea theme, drawing some fish for them to eat.  Whilst it sounds disjointed and ‘dream-like’, it really took us out of our left brain (the thinking one) and into our right brain (the creative one) where any idea is a good idea and also very relaxing!  Before we knew it, we had what looks like a page of symbols, but which was actually a wonderful verbal story, told together!  Maybe a bit like the Aborigines…?  Give it a try!
