Happy New Year! We hope you have entered this new year feeling refreshed and ready for new beginnings.
New Year's Day marks a lot of new beginnings, which might be difficult for children to understand. We thought it would be fun to serve up some fresh new writing prompts to help your children better understand what all the buzz about a new year is about. What better character to deliver these prompts, but Maji the Time Travelling Elephant? She knows a lot about new years!
These writing prompts can be used as free-writes in the writing section of your children’s Night Zookeeper accounts, or they can certainly be written by hand. If your child doesn’t have an account yet, you can sign up here.
The writing prompts listed below were written with the intention of guiding your children to start think about new beginnings and resolutions. It also has them reflect on past accomplishments that they should be proud of. We offer an array of different types of writing and drawing challenges, asking them to create new magical animals, write adventure stories, poems, persuasive essays, reports, as well as short stories. Please feel free to change the type of writing you would like your child to do; the idea is to get them engaged and wanting to write about January and the year to come!
With these wonderful New Year's writing prompts for kids, your children can make great use of their imaginations and creative drive. Whatever your child decides to write about, we hope they will keep their writing fun and a little bit magical!
We encourage you to share any work produced from Maji’s New Year's Writing Prompts by your children! We love reading creative writing and encouraging children to love creative writing. If you enjoyed these wonderful winter writing prompt ideas for kids, please share them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.
