Short Stories

Short Stories craft

There's plenty of space for creativity in these short stories. The long and short of it is, this clever activity lets kids relive summer fun while getting back in the "write" mood for school.

  • 1.

    On a large piece of construction paper, use Crayola® Washable Markers and Crayola Scissors to draw and cut out a pair of shorts. Decorate the shorts in your favorite designs.

  • 2.

    Cut lined paper to fit in the center of your shorts.

  • 3.

    Write a short story about what you did on summer break. Younger children can dictate stories to an adult or student.

  • 4.

    Glue the story on your shorts with a Crayola Glue Stick.
