Abstract
The Indonesian nation must be built by prioritizing character development because this character building will make Indonesia a great, advanced, and glorious, dignified nation. Today the rapid progress and sophistication of technology makes habits begin to be abandoned. Children now prefer to play gadgets and play stations rather than traditional children’s games, whereas traditional children’s games are not just games but also teaches about many lessons such as practicing patience, cooperation, responsibility, tolerance, and caring among others. Therefore, it is necessary to plant good character traits early on in early childhood, with the hope that good character can be well embedded early on. Character is not formed by learning in class, but it requires habituation. Through storytelling it is hoped that children will recognize, understand and be able to feel the values contained in the story, so good character values will be embedded in the child. The habit of telling stories or storytelling about folklore needs to be done at school, especially at home, so that communication between teachers, parents, and children can be established in instilling the children’s character.
