24 FUN Writing Prompts for Kids {Keeping a Summer Writing Journal}

The Lil Divas have a Summer Writing Journal. A few times a week I give them a writing prompt and let their creativity flow as they practice crucial writing skills.

Getting our writing journals together was super easy. I opted to use notebooks we had left over from the school year. To personalize them I simply put a white paper cover on the front for the Lil Divas to decorate as desired.

I stocked up on fun stickers from our local Dollar Tree and brainstormed some FUN Writing Prompts. I'm excited to share some of them with you. I made a quick printable list cut it up, folded them and placed them in an extra sand bucket I had on hand. It's super easy for the Lil Divas to randomly pick a piece of paper and get writing!
