We’re Stuck in a House (Kid Story Contest)

trees beside white house

E’RE stuck in a house. Maybe you are too? That’s a couple lines for a short children’s story I wrote tonight that made me think of an idea. I love to publish short kids’ books for my own kids. I self- publish them through a company called Blurb. But with this story, I want to use your kids’ art!

I thought a little challenge might be fun since we are all stuck in a house. Below is a video explainer of what I’m thinking and the text for the story below. If your children would like to make some drawings to illustrate this story, just email me them me through Facebook Messenger. On Sunday evening next week I’ll show all the artwork and share which ones are going to be in the book. I’ll design and upload the book within a week after that for anyone to flip through online.

 

We’re Stuck in a House

We’re stuck in a house

What shall we do?

We’re stuck in a house

Maybe you are too.

We’re stuck in a house

What shall we see?

We’re stuck in a house

What shall we be?

We’re stuck in a house

But what if it were a zoo

We’re stuck in a house

With bears, dogs, and kangaroos

We’re stuck in a house

But what if it were a ship

We’re stuck in a house

On a wonderful nautical trip

We’re stuck in a house

Isn’t it grand?

We’re stuck in a house

Our thinking mustn’t be bland

We’re stuck in a house

With nowhere to go

We’re stuck in a house

Or maybe it’s a UFO

We’re stuck in a house

On our way all the way to Mars

We’re stuck in a house

We’ll fly over all of the cars

We’re stuck in a house

Blasting right through space

We’re stuck in a house

On an amazing alien race

We’re stuck in a house

Make no doubt

We’re stuck in a house

Please don’t pout

We’re stuck in a house

But we haven’t lost our minds

We’re stuck in our house

Not stuck on our behinds

We’re stuck in a house

No reason for consternation

We’re stuck in a house

So let’s use our imagination

We’re stuck in a house

You see

We’re stuck in a house

Please Imagine, with me.
