These summer writing prompts printable sheets for kids will encourage children to write and create throughout the summer.
We like to keep summers fun and easy for our kids. However, any time I can sneak in a bit of learning to prevent the summer slide through fun, I take the opportunity. These summer writing prompts printable sheets are fun for kids to get thinking and creating (and even writing!).
Summer Writing Prompts Printable Sheets
If your kids are anything like mine, they aren’t thrilled about me making them sit down and write during the summer. They like to spend their days in the pool, or throwing a ball in the backyard.
If I were to drag them out of the pool to say “hey, let’s sit down and practice your writing”, I’m sure I would be met with groans. However, if when they come in for lunch I whip out some fun writing prompts with pictures and declare that we can sit and make up some fun stories, they just might get excited!
These summer writing prompts printable sheets include a packet of 4 journal entry ideas with a summer theme for kids.
Summer Writing Prompts for Kids
The summer writing prompts in this printable packet includes these 4 journal entry story ideas:
- Describe your perfect beach day. Do you like to play in the water? Build sand castles?
- You get to produce a video on the beach! What is the story going to be? Who are the characters?
- What is your favorite thing to see on a nature hike? Do you like to hunt for bugs? See beautiful scenery?
- What do you think a day in the life of a mermaid is like? What would a mermaid keep in a treasure chest?
Each of these prompts ideas are paired with images that will spark kids’ creativity and imagination. Children can read the prompt, study the picture, and get writing! Before they know it, they will be practicing their handwriting and story telling while having fun.
