SpringLea found this Rory's Story Cubes dice 'game' at Wel-green. The bag has 9 dice (all six sided) and each side as a picture on it. It cost about $7.00. I figure it would be a good first prompt for all of us.
Easier writing prompt: write a story that includes one of the three dice groups' icons, or something relating to the icons, in the above picture:
- dialog bubble, balance scale, unhappy face
- flashlight, letter 'L', open book
- parachute, turtle, tree
- dialog bubble
- balance scale
- unhappy face
- letter 'L'
- open book
