What’s Your Story?


Whether you know it or not, you have a story to tell!

This week we want to give you the opportunity to practice your storytelling skills. Storytelling is a powerful way for us to understand ourselves, our friends and family, and the world around us! Explore below for videos and prompts to get you started in sharing your story.

Share your Design Challenge creations with us on Facebook and Instagram or email us at dailyadventures@tomtodideas.org.

  • Why is the story of your family important?
  • How do you define family?


Student Design Challenge

Tell us about a hard-won victory — in sports, school, your personal life, or anywhere else. What did you achieve? What did you do to prepare? What did your success mean to you at the time — and what does it mean to you now? What advice you do have for people who want to follow in your footsteps, but who are just starting to work toward that goal? 

Write, draw, or build your story then send it to us to be featured on social media on Instagram or a dailyadventures@tomtodideas.org.
