15 Fun Writing Activities For Kids

15 writing activities for kidsTeaching kids how to write doesn’t have to be all about repetition. There is absolutely a time and a place for that while learning to form specific letters but these writing activities are less structured, more creative and a good compliment to the drill that comes with learning to write.  Some of these activities are drawing which is often the key to making practice fun . Let them draw , encourage them to draw and provide tools for them to draw as much as possible. Many kids who aren’t fans of writing aren’t as unhappy with drawing so use that as your door to making them love writing too.
