This one requires some prep—but that’s fun too!
Find several small, smooth stones and have the kids paint a little animal, plant, person, or other object on each one (nail polish and paint pens both do the trick, and little paper cards work as well as stones). Then, place the stones in a basket and keep them near the table.
To play, pass the basket around and as each person draws a stone, the challenge is to add a few sentences featuring that animal, plant, person or object to the story. The story ends when all the stones have been drawn.
