Improvise a story


In this warmup, you will creatively develop a random story by building on each other's ideas.

What I want you to do is

1. Select one person who starts with "Once upon a time ..."

2. The person with the next impulse continues the sentence/story with a few words ...

3. Another person adds a few words to the sentence/story of the previous person.

4. You continue until 5min are up.

Tipp: Keep the story open-ended.


This exercise aims to spark your creativity and storytelling in the group. It encourages you to build on the ideas of others. There are no limits to creative thoughts.
