Imagine Your Story: Tall Tales and Myths! June 9

This week in the HLS summer reading program, we will explore the genre of myths, fables, folk or tall tales, and fairy tales. Today, we’re going to make our own labyrinths, learn about fables, and read “The Little Red Hen.”

Activity Time! Labyrinths

Today we are going to make our own labyrinth. 

  • If you have a concrete driveway and some sidewalk chalk, you can draw your labyrinth with the chalk.
  • You can use a stick to draw a labyrinth in the sand or in the dirt.
  • You can use stones to create a labyrinth.
  • You can make a labyrinth with cardboard and paper.

Share a picture of your labyrinth with us.

Here is a picture of the start of our sand/stone labyrinth.

Watch me find my way through our chalk labyrinth.


Fables are the type of story we are going to look at today. A fable is something that has been passed down over the generations. They usually have talking animals in these stories. There is usually a lesson that you can learn through the fable.

Story Time!

Read “The Little Red Hen.”

Share your photos of your labyrinth in the comments or on social media using the hashtag #HLSSummerReading!
