creative writing

12:00 AM

Happy Monday, friends! As usual, my weekend went a little too fast. Did yours also go too fast? Well, to give you a few laughs as we start the new week, I thought I would share some of my kid's creative writing activities. Once a week, I give them a creative writing prompt that I've printed out from (I love their site for printing worksheets). They usually complain and remind me, once again, that they don't like writing. I smile and tell them to do it anyway. It's good for them to exercise that part of their brain. A few weeks ago, they had the following prompts...

that look 

Imagine you won $1000, but you couldn't keep it or spend it on yourself. What would you do with it? Write one creative paragraph describing your plan.

Joshua wrote, "I would give it to TTH."

While I loved his response, I told him that a paragraph was 3-4 sentences. His response? "If you can say it in one, why use more?" Silly, silly boy. 

Next prompt.


Imagine you are a scientist and you have created a new potion. In a brief paragraph, write what your potion does. Describe its powers and how you can use it to help the world.

Emma G wrote, "If you were having a baby, it wouldn't hurt. The baby will just go PLOP! BOOM! And it wouldn't hurt."

Now how many moms wish they potion existed??
