A tip to encourage creative writing in your child

Not only do we feel very strongly about this topic, but it is also one that is very close to our hearts. Creative writing is a form of self-expression and a trait that forms a very crucial part of our character.

To this end, we thought we’d share this tip to help you help your child at home.

In order to help your child avoid writer’s block, help them by creating writing prompts together. This is a great way to kickstart writing ideas in your child. Come up with a topic, discuss it through and have your child develop it further. Other ideas could be to describe a favourite place, imagine you are on holiday and you meet or discover an unusual-looking creature. Exercises like this will definitely not only open the floodgates but will also put the fun back in writing!
