Easy Ways to Boost Creative Writing Time

Need some simple yet effective ways to make writing time more fun for your kids?

I totally get it! Writing hasn't always been my boys favorites subject in our homeschool. In fact, it's often been a time of frustration, anger, and despair.

Although I enjoy writing, my boys don't. So, I've had to think outside the box and find ways to weave in some writing fun activities.

Free writing (just letting the boys jot down in their journal whatever comes to mind) can be hit-or-miss. And I understand how a blank page can feel overwhelming when you're just not feeling it.

Over the years, writing prompts have been the best ways to help my boys overcome that writer's block (or deer-in-headlights) feeling when it comes to putting pen (or pencil) to paper.

But, I struggle with coming up with creative prompts on the fly, especially if I'm distracted with helping another boy or having a space cadet day.

So, I put together this pack of writing prompts for kids to pull out whenever we need a boost to our creative juices. And I'm sharing this free printable set with you - I hope you love it!

Cool Ideas for Making Creative Writing Time Fun with These Prompts

I printed our creative writing prompts on white cardstock for durability. The boys and I cut out the strips and place in a large mason jar. When the boys need a creative writing prompt, they randomly pick from the jar and start brainstorming.

You may want to print the prompts on regular paper. Leave as-is or cut into strips. Then, fold the strips and put into a container to randomly select your writing fun.

These creative writing tips for kids can really boost your learning fun, too!

If you have younger kids that you're working with, you can encourage them to draw pictures. As they draw, jot down their story. You can simply add your writing to their drawing by stapling to bottom of picture. Or your younger children can copy your writing on age-appropriate paper.

Encourage your kids to build on these themes! Brainstorm other ideas to write about or research. And use other resources for writing fun like these 50 free fantasy writing prompts and plot ideas.
