Do you play acting out stories with your toddlers? (Admission: it's one of those things I find really boring, that lights their little faces up, so I *make* myself do it, and find that their joy carries me and I start to enjoy it myself too.)
Here's Rowan telling The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
If I don't get the toys out and do floor puppetry with them very often, I find her sitting telling these stories anyway, using her hands as the puppets. Admire that creativity! In fact, I'm not sure the fancy toys add a single thing. And hearing them retell old old stories in their own words and their own style, there's something astonishing and new every time, but the link to past generations makes my heart skippity (just a little bit).
And here's some creative little pigs in houses assembled by Roo. :)
Go on, set up a story today. Get out a game or a book you haven't had out in ages. Do something different...
And if your toddler is anything like mine, you'll probably get a wonderful bizarre combined alternative story out of them: like how mummy goat came and kicked the wolf and mummy pig said that's not kind, use your words! *beam*
