How to make your stories enchanting

This week we were invited to the launch of a fantastic new storytime sounds app by Not On The High Street.  I always love the quirky gifts you can get on their site so was excited to find out what they had in store for us with the storytime sounds app.  

We arrived to the Soho basement event to a room filled with little witches, vampires, skeletons and the odd super hero sat ready for a spooky story.

The story tellers were very engaging and the children sat attentively throughout waiting to find out what the next spooky sound would be.  You see the app doesn't tell the story for you but gives you the option of some great sound effects to turn an ordinary story into an enchanting one. 

The great thing is it's not just for Halloween,  the app has other sounds that will liven up your story times.  It is also great for encouraging children to tell stories of their own, using the app as an aid.

The children had lots of fun and we're really spoilt with entertainment swwets and goodies to take away, so the overall launch gets a thumbs up from little man.

The app is available to download from apple app store.

Even the princess who was older than the apps 3-8 target market was very impressed.

So if you're looking to spice up story time go and find the app!  

What other interesting ways have you found to make storytime more fun?
