Sometimes I like to give my girls writing prompts, just to have them thinking a little different. Nothing hard, but perfect for young writers.We don’t really have an imagation problem with my kids, my girls are all over creative writing and drawing.
My girls are consistently creating stories and pictures to go with them, and I love it. I loved writing stories as a child, well into my teens in fact.

Ideas to get you started:
- images – write a story or paragraph about a photo
- themes – season related, topic related
- a jar of prompts – I like this, the fun, the surprise of what you could have to write about
Ideas to get them started:
- about their day
- favorite animal
- favorite extra curriculur activities
- what they want to be with they grow up – this is fun to do year after year.
- What do you like or dislike about school most?
- Describe how to make pizza
There are a lot of great ideas out there to interge your child into writing. One I always liked as a child was to look out my window and describe what I saw… or create a story about something I saw out there.
