Today I tried the cubes with my young friends on the Cornich. Shahd 10 years and Samaa 15 years. It was fun and challenging more than I imagined.

I strated by telling I have a game for you today, I saw it on the internet and thought we can try it together. "Have you ever wrote a story before?" Shahd said no, and Samaa said sometimes in Arabic assignmemts at school. I said "but did you create a story for your own enjoyment" she said no.
I then explained the cubes and the activity quickly. I said "we have several ways to do it, each one of us will roll the dices once and tell the story oral or we can take time to write it down" Shahd said "no lets do it oral" she doesn't like writing.
The stories were created quickly, not so coherent or logical but it was fun. I mentioned that lets try to make an end to the story and not close it with a general statment. Round by round it got better. After 4 rounds I asked what do you think we can do to make our stories better, maybe we need more time. So we I suggested that instead of the rounds we can through the cubes and each one write his own story then we share it together. Although Shahd mentioned in the begining that she doesn't want to writw, she got really excited and we looked for papers.We wrote longer and more coherentstories than the oral ones. Sama tried to add a moral in each story which was beautiful. Sometimes it's difficult to imagine the cube picture as any other thing than the direct one, but they created longer sentences around each one and they took the audio files to the mothers to listen to it. The mothers liked the idea also. After two stories we ran out of paper and they were so excited to go to Jarir to buy some papers to write more stories. At Jarir Shahd's sister who is 16 joined us. To overcome the challenge that we usually see the thing as it is, we looked at each picture and brainstormed quickly what could it be. Shahd's sister was so imaginative and we all commented on that, she mentioned that because she reads fiction alot.
Sama commented that by practice our stories got better. Shahd at the begining used to tell "My story is the worst..mine isn't as good as you" but I encouraged her a little and she kept going. She was so excited and asked me to bring this every Friday "You can also bring more cubes with more pictures like river, playground, birds and sea..you don't have to print it, you can draw it".
The mothers liked the idea too and got interetsed. One of them said " This awesome and way better than just sitting infront of the computer" the other mum agreed "I didn't imagine that Shahd will like it that much". Shahd's mom was bit judgmental when she heard the stories "No this one isn't good, the previous one was better". " مريم بتقلك انها حلوة بتجاملك عشان متكسرش مقاديفك". I didn't like this but I didn't comment.
We spent 3 hours in this activity, including prayer and going to Jarir and this was way longer than I thought.I thought we will just create one or two and they will get bored. Even me enjoyed writing the stories and I was surprised with my imagination.

This is a quick note as I just came. I just thought to share what happened with you and I will reflect more and listen again to the stories they created.
