Crystal Ball Writing Prompt

In a park painted with the colours of fall and a soft blanket of leaves, a small child finds something magical: a crystal ball floating gently in the air. The crystal ball shows delightful and enchanting images as the child gazes at it. What playful scenes or friendly creatures does the child see inside? Write a narrative about the child’s magical adventure with the wondrous crystal ball in the park on this special autumn day.
