Creative Writing Kids Activities

Every child has an artistic area in which they seem naturally inclined towards. Some children are natural artists, some are natural musicians and of course some are natural creative writers. Whether a child picks up writing as a natural gift or must develop this talent, there are creative writing kids activities that can help them have fun and learn at the same time. Kids must learn not only the creative part of writing, but the more technical aspects as well like grammar, construction, punctuation and spelling. Encouraging young writers can keep them inspired for a lifetime.

Creative writing for kids can be taught in a variety of ways. Children will learn the basics of writing in English and grammar classes. The creative part can be sparked through prompts and exercises. For young children, have them write a story about something they are familiar with, such as what they did over the summer or their pet. You can give them a topic, which many kids prefer, or have them come up with one themselves. Some students may need a little nudge to come up with what they want to write about.

When teaching children creative writing, encourage them to read as well. By reading what other creative writers have done, they can pick up skills and expand their own creative ideas. You may want them to write a story about a book they read, something like what would they have done if they were the main character. Another fun thing for kids is taking turns adding words or sentences to a story so that everyone pitches in. Some of these stories can get quite amusing and leave the kids laughing. Another funny thing to do with youngsters is the game of Mad Libs, where certain types of words (nouns, adjectives, verbs) are chosen at random then inserted into blanks in a story.

In addition to schools teaching creative writing kids can also benefit from extracurricular activities like writing groups or workshops for their age group. For the child who wants to be a writer, or wants to teach writing, these are wonderful opportunities. Parents should not dismiss a child's passion for writing as something whimsical that will never pay the bills; while not every author can earn like J.K. Rowling, there are many lucrative careers that relate to creative writing. By encouraging your child you can propel them to higher levels confidence and satisfaction with their writing.
