Encouraging Creative Writing

Mommy Labs believes that in order to get  kids interested in writing we have to give them reasons to write!  She helped her little ones create pin up noteboards out of upcycled DVD cases.

This activity from Primary Graffiti will give kids of any age a chuckle. Parents donated magazines. The kids selected funny pictures and created quirky dialogue to enhance each picture. 

The Important Book  became an interested writing spring board at Together Time 4 Families.

Creative Writing Now has ideas for starting your own creative journaling.

In honor of The Royal Wedding today I just had to share a goofy little book that I had fun working in to a creative writing lesson.  In the story, a little girl lets her imagination run wild as she imagines which knickers the Queen will be wearing when she comes to visit the child's school.  Kids Book Review shares a complete review of the highlights of the book. The illustrations are adorable and the text is sure to bring some giggles.

Check out what one school did to get creative after reading the book.
