Ideas Fund: Small Small Rainbows

Image by Siân Bevan

Small Small Rainbows is a celebration of tiny stories: reading them, writing them and playing with them. 

Every day for 30 days, writer and comedian Siân Bevan will be sharing very short stories for families to share, over breakfast, after arguments or just before bed when everyone’s slumped. The stories will be tiny and joyful, and will include tips for grown-ups on ways to read the stories and chats you can all have about them.

Sign-up for the newsletter here to receive your stories throughout June.

She’ll also be sharing videos and downloadable resources to help anyone who would like to write their own stories. Spelling’s not important, and there are lots of ways to use games, fidgeting, drawing and play to make short short stories for yourself. We will post these resources here during June.

Some of the work will be aimed at ages 5-9, and some for ages 10+, click on the relevant box below to find out more for your age group.

If you’re a bit older (or even a lot older), you might be interested in Small Rainbows - a newsletter which sends a small story every weekday to cheer up your email inbox.
