StoryGuider: Wizard in Training Trilogy

These StoryGuider games are from the Wizard in Training trilogy! These games concentrate on learning about problem solving and building skills (like tracking inventory, using spells, and taking on slightly more challenging quests) to prep kids for the next TTRPG that you’ll try with them!

These games are designed for ages 2-5 and follow the story of Will (short for Willow), who is just learning to use magic for the firs time! They are eager to start, but sometimes it can help to slow down and watch, go out and explore, or practice before dashing straight into a situation!

All StoryGuider games focus on the following core set of skills:

  • Make choices between two options
  • Point to pictures when they are named and/or naming pictures
  • Give short answers (1-4 words)
  • Play simple make-believe games
  • Practice simple exercises
  • Practice gross motor skills (jumping, stomping, etc)
  • Practice fine motor skills (coloring, cutting, etc)

In addition, each game also focuses on at least 2 additional unique skills per game (details in below descriptions).
