Creative Writing Tips, Ideas and Activities for Kids

Creative writing and shooting are muscles that atrophy. But when you work them, you become a self-generator who can branch out. – Eli Roth

Little minds are very curious and imaginative. They are like little bombs awaiting little sparks. Give them good stuffs and guide them right so that when they explode both your family and society will benefit.



Creativity is the power of creating something new which involves three elements – thought, imagination and action. Thought process is the base which develops through imagination and ends in creation of something new. Everyone thinks and ends in dreams. But very few people materialize their dreams. What it requires at the end is a will to act accordingly. Therefore creativity without action is futile.

Here are some tips, ideas and activities for your kids to develop a creative writing style.

Creative writing is best and easy way to make them think and grow. It will help express their personality and ideas.

  • Great stuff. I think it is very important to encourage children to use their imagination. My mother who had seven kids, was constantly challenging us .. publish our own newspaper, make up quizes and word games, find different locations on the globe. She once asked me to find Mauritius. It took me the best past of the day to ultimately find it. At one time she were given the task of writing a play.write and produce a play. That one was staged in our garage and we made something like six shillings by charging all the kids in the neighbouhood to see the play. i have written some funny children's stories based on our childhood experiences. Some of these are available for free on my website
