The longest day of the year is fast approaching and I’ve shared our summer solstice unit study which we’re revisiting again this year in the lead-up to the day. Within it, I shared a few of the creative writing prompts that we have used in the past but I thought it would be great to put together a set of 10 Creative Writing Prompts that you can use with your kids to celebrate the summer solstice. So here we go.
Creative Writing Prompts
Creative writing prompts are a useful tool for your homeschool. They provide a starting point and direction for writing exercises with your kids. This makes it easier for them to dive straight into the writing process instead of having to think of an idea first. Check out our set of creative writing prompts to help kids overcome writer’s block for some ideas.
Prompts can encourage creativity and imagination by presenting them with different ideas, this pushes them to think outside the box and creates original and innovative writing.
Prompts also serve as a tool for skill development as you can find sets that work on specific areas of writing or genres. Next week I’m sharing a set of descriptive writing prompts that my kids have found interesting to write and have definitely improved their descriptive writing skills.
The prompts can add a little variety and fun to your home-educating time. They spark curiosity and encourage them to step out of the familiar, and explore different themes, characters and settings. Making writing a fresh and new experience.
