200+ Printable Writing Prompts for Kids

I had a fortunate conversation with a teacher friend many years ago who told me that she was always looking for interesting printable writing prompts (or story starters) for her students. Ever since then, we’ve added writing prompt worksheets for nearly every holiday and season of the year! It was high time we put up a post that made it easy to find them all in one place. And below all the links to the themed worksheets, there’s 21 new generic writing prompts you can use at any time of the year!

Writing prompts are great creativity and imagination starters for students, giving them a framework and starting point to writing something interesting, funny, or to help them practice formulating a point of view. These simple worksheets are only one page each, so they aren’t too intimidating for kids with limited writing skills.
