Circle stories

I forgot to mention these in our list of games, but inventing 'circle stories' are another of Lyddie's favourite pastimes.

A really simple example might be:

"Once there was a little girl, who lay in her bed all tucked up, cosy and warm and listened to her mother telling a story about a little girl, who lay in her bed all tucked up, cosy and warm and listened to her mother telling a story about a little girl..." etc.

But of course they can be very intricate and elaborate - as long as they make a repeatable circle. The game - I think - as well as managing to complete the circle with the story, is to manage to remember it exactly right each time round.

Keeps us amused, anyway..
