Halloween Spooky Scribes with George at Asda


George at Asda invited us to take part in their “Spooky Scribes” Short Story Challenge. Small one is only three, but she was so excited by the idea of having to do some “homework” and being paid in Halloween costumes and facepaints, that we thought we’d give it a go. As it turns out she weaves a good, if slightly surreal yarn…

Judeenunna the Scary Fairy

This is Judeenunna. She lives in the forest on her own. Judeenunna likes to eat Weetabix and vicworia, which is made with chuckanuckabuch. She doesn’t have any friends but she does have two cousins. She is a scary fairy and she huffs and puffs and huffs and puffs for Glasgow. We have to scream and run away from her.

At night Judeenunna will be in the garden. She is scratching and punching and eating insects and the snails will be eaten so they don’t bite us. When the naughty animals scratch and punch, she kicks the animals until they go away because they have to be eaten and they can’t eat the vegetables. They have to run away from her.

Judeenunna is lonely because everyone runs away but she is really a good nunna, because she looks after the garden. We can invite her to Christmas and to Halloween and my birthday and she can be our friend.

By Jenny, age 3

The story with the most comments wins a prize so please do leave a comment below if you liked “Judeenunna the Scary Fairy”. I don’t think small will win, but it will make her day to know that big people have read her story on their computers.

Small chose a Light Up Witch Halloween Costume from the girls costume range and a lime green Long Sleeved Monster Top from the boys range for Judeenunna to wear (warm layers and sleeves are a must for all self-respecting scary fairies). She accessorised with purple wellies, purple gloves and stripy tights – just perfect for running around in the rain eating snails and insects!

Obviously small one isn’t quite old enough to write her story down yet so I had to act as scribe, but this is all her own work. Her big sister, the curly one (12), was also inspired to join in, and drew Judeenunna’s cousin for us. I’ll upload a clip of small telling the story later!

Disclosure: Each child taking part in the Spooky Scribes Challenge received a Halloween costume, some pens, face paints and vouchers to help them write their scary Halloween story. The final stories will be turned into books for them to keep. It’s a great way to start storytelling with child of all ages and we’ve loved taking part!
