Welcome!

Here at the Kids' Storytelling Club, we have been working hard to improve our website. One big change you'll notice is that we've remodeled our clubhouse. This allows us to put much more online to help young storytellers everywhere.

We've also upgraded our technology to be mobile-friendly so you can easily get our storytelling help anywhere from any device.

What all this means is, if you are…

  • a beginning young storyteller needing basic tips
  • a more experienced teller hoping to find new ideas
  • looking for sample stories, easy props, and helpful advice
  • having storytelling questions about adapting to audiences, creating interesting characters, or not making mistakes when telling
  • wanting to learn to create and tell your own story

…you've come to the right place!

In Our Newly Remodeled Clubhouse

There's online storytelling help created just for the Kids' Storytelling Club. Also there is a sample project from one of our popular back-issues of Junior Storyteller, and content from our print books and ebooks. And we've always been and still are a kid-safe and ad-free site.

Storytelling Ideas Anytime!

In the clubhouse, you'll find many ideas of crafts to make, stories to tell, and places to tell them, and expert help. There's as much on these pages as we might put into a beginner's booklet. And this clubhouse “web-book” is always available, instantly from any device, and may continue to grow as we occasionally add to it. Plus, you'll find free downloads for your personal use, so it's not just one booklet, but more!

In addition to general advice and ideas, you'll find specific help such as:

Our Featured Club Project:
The Peace Puzzle

Future Projects May Include:
Basic Beginner Telling; Dealing With Storytelling “Mistakes”; Creating Interesting Characters And Good Endings; Costumes for Storytelling

Don't Have Time to Tour the Clubhouse Today?

Don't worry! We've invited guests and brought some of our “story dust” out here onto the clubhouse front porch so we can share stories with everyone who stops by.

Peace Puzzle
Who has the missing piece needed for peace? In “The Peace Puzzle” you'll discover what makes a good story timeless, and get ideas to adapt it for modern audiences. This popular back-issue is available in the Clubhouse, click the image or CLICK HERE, and you may then download a copy for your personal use. (771KB pdf file)
And you can visit our guests next to our clubhouse in our Visitors' Lounge. You can then enter the clubhouse from there or return here to join us.

Tell A Story, Join the Club!

When you tell a story, you become a storyteller, part of a long tradition of people who have shared stories to teach or inform, to inspire or convince, to entertain or amuse, or just to plain have fun. We hope the information, ideas, and advice here at the Kids' Storytelling Club helps you create your own stories to tell and helps you find places to tell them in your everyday life. In addition to what you find here online at the Club, you can get more sample stories, creative advice, and detailed craft instructions in our digital and print books, available in our bookstore. Tell a story! Join the fun, today!
