In the game ‘Once there was…’, children create a story about Cat Mickey’s trip to a dream castle. They pick cards and try to relate the objects pictured on the cards meaningfully – a shoe, a mouse, a boat, a spider, a goat, a ghost, and so on – as Cat Mickey meets all of them on his way to the castle. In the game, children develop the capacity for storytelling: they establish links and relations, perceive time, space, reasons and consequences, form sentences and connect them. The game helps them to develop their imagination and creativity, their communication and cooperation skills, logical thinking and memory.
