A lot of my creative writing workshops are aimed at children these days, so during this difficult time we’re in, I thought I’d put some resources together aimed at parents and teachers of primary school children. I’m hoping it will help you stay sane while the children are at home. Creating it has certainly helped keep me sane!
For the pack, I’ve gathered together all the activities I’ve ever done with children at writing camps and at writing workshops in schools. The activities will cater for all stages, from infant classes to sixth class. I’ve suggested ways of adapting the activities for younger children or reluctant readers.
This picture acts as a prompt for children to create their own disgusting recipe. It’s one of the activities included in the pack.
I know you’re probably being bombarded with info at the moment, so I want to stress that you do not have to do all or even any of these activities. They’re divided into themes for ease of access and you can adapt them for your children. I’m hoping these activities will keep budding writers stimulated and that they’ll persuade reluctant writers that writing can be fun.
