"What is a Story Jar?
Hello, I’m Stef. In our home we have a jar. It’s filled with pieces of paper. On each piece of paper is written a title of a story. A story that is yet to be told. We call it the story jar. Every home should have one.
When my children go to bed at night, sometimes I pluck a story title from the jar and just make something up. It’s become one of my favourite things to do, and my children love the stories I make up for them. Recently I’ve been recording the stories and I’ve had friends tell me how much they enjoy listening to the things I make up."
