How to Use Story Writing Prompts
There are a few ways that we like to use our writing prompts. One option is to place the cutout strips into a mason jar and have your child reach into the jar and pull out a prompt – totally at random.
Another option is to grab a big pile of awesome fall books and set up a fall themed reading and writing station for your kids. The kids can read a book or two and then pick a fall story writing prompt from the pile and create a new book. Be sure to check out our post all about how to create a creative story writing kit – it’s filled with some other great resources and tips.
Finally, while these are story writing prompts they also work to spark storytelling with kids. Pass out these storytelling prompts around the dinner table, around the campfire, in the car on a long road trip or in the classroom. Turn story writing into storytelling and watch the imagination flow.
No matter how you choose to use these prompts, they are sure to lead to some awesome autumnal stories.
