Bringing a Story to Life in 7 Days

Sarah had tried a story basket and also sharing resources she made with the children in her early childhood setting but had stopped as the children were not respecting the resources and ‘trashing’ them.

Rather than give up she decided to invest in the 7 day challenge.  She couldn’t believe how well the story basket went after doing the challenge. The children were engaged, they worked together with a child offering to ‘read’ the story and others playing with the resources as the story was told. 

All she did was watch the videos, follow the steps, make a story basket, and then the magic happened! The children joined in and they were all immersed in play while developing their language, literacy and cognitive skills! Their love for the story was brought to life and now they want to share books in a story basket all of the time!

You can create story baskets too and I’ll show you how!

In this 7 day challenge you will make a story basket and share it with children in 7 days.

Feedback from past challenges


Thank you Michelle. The challenge was amazing at allowing for individual creativity while also providing easy to follow steps to ensure the story baskets provided focused learning.

The information and demonstrations helped me to critique my practice and improve on creating baskets that provide more texture and layers to the learning than I had previously considered.

I loved how easy going and supportive the other participants were, it really felt like a lovely little community.

Thank you again for sharing your knowledge with us.
