Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

Using paper, pen, and coloring materials, we will create an exciting story in the form of a comic book. Kids will learn how a good story uses a beginning, middle, and end create an action-packed plot. As the story about "good guys" and "bad guys" unfolds, kids will learn about the ways a person's choices affect other people and situations. While we may not realize it at first, there isn't always a hero or a villain in a comic book--sometimes characters just make mistakes or are misunderstood. This exercise in writing will help kids find their inner hero, who can see the good in everyone!

Sample Activities and Instructions

Create Your Characters: Using your imagination, think about the most important characters who will be in your story. What do they look like? Do they have superpowers? What makes them special or different? What makes someone a hero?
Beginning, Middle, and End: We will work together to create a story with a beginning, middle, and end. What are the big moments in the story where characters meet, interact, and change?
Draw it Out: Place each main action into a story box with a drawing. We will work together to create story narration, thought bubbles, and text.
Make it Pop!: Use bright colors to make the story fun and interesting to read.
Share Your Comic: Read the story you've created with loved ones and friends. Be sure to tell them what you learned about what it means to be a hero.
