Free Writing Prompts for Kids
I have two types of writers in my home, one is a reluctant one, and the other one loves to write. So, I wanted to create some writing prompts that would fit both needs. How did I do that? By sitting BOTH kids down and letting them help me come up with some great writing prompts.
- They are imaginative. If you have a kid who loves to dream, then they will enjoy these free writing prompts.
- They get kids thinking. I like to challenge my kids, and these writing prompts will engage your kids and get their minds moving.
- They are informative. Wondering what your kids have on their minds? Or what they think about life? These free writing prompts will get your kids writing about their family, their life, and will help you know what your kids have on their mind.
