Winter Writing Topics for Kids

Finding activities to keep your children engaged during the winter can be challenging.  Our February Journal Prompts for Kids will help encourage children to enjoy writing from a young age and will be beneficial through their school years.  Creative writing prompts are a perfect activity for a snowy or cold day and are a great distraction to keep them occupied for a while.

These interactive writing prompts cover a variety of winter topics to inspire and engage your young writers.  You may consider purchasing a composition notebook from the dollar store to keep an ongoing notebook of writing entries.

Encourage your children to think, reflect, be creative, silly, or serious with their writing.  We want writing to be fun!
