i've started this thing where the kinds have to pull 3 random index cards. one has a character, one has a setting, and one has a problem on it. the rest of the story is up to the kids.
here is a product of such an expiriment.
Once upon a time a cow broke into the Dollar store and picked up 3 gallons of milk. The manager said why do you need milk? He said I ran out. Then the manager said you're a cow. He punched the man and made him brake his arm. everybody started throwing can goods at him. He ran out of the store and left his milk and drove away!
