3. Creative Writing Journal

Do your kids enjoy making up stories and drawing? Encourage them to write stories and illustrate them with this kind of a journal.

Make prompts like the ones below and sit back to enjoy the stories they spin.


• Unicorn/castle/sword fight

• Bear/woods/alien

Get creative making your own writing prompts. You can do this for your children by picking a setting, character, and a problem or you can get this awesome game, Rory's Story Cubes that works wonderfully for building imagination and story telling skills.

For more creative writing prompts check out Scholastic's prompt generator.

Creative and reflective writing helps children grow their minds. It improves imagination, communication, story telling, spelling and grammar. A journal can also act as a safe place for kids to write about anything they want, so respect that. Help your kids go on the biggest adventure of their lives by starting a journal. It will build them into who they are, by allowing them to find out who they are.

Here are more tips to help ignite your child's love of learning.
