I Love to Write Day

At Home Family Fun:

  • Write a Story.  If your kids love to tell stories and write them down. Spend some time today indulging that desire.
  • Draw a Story. I DO love to write! My children, not so much. I’ve recently decided this relates to the fact that my kids struggle with all things related to fine motor skills — ie. tying their shoes, penmanship, pouring milk. While I want them to get to a point where they love to write, too. I think I have to deal with their fine motor skills first.  This is why I have decided to start encouraging drawing first. I like Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Animals because it incorporates many of the same shapes we use in drawing letters. Find his Drawing Pages here.
  • Play Mad Libs.  For a shorthand version of writing, play a game of Mad Libs.
  • Or Try These 15 Fun & Creative Writing Games from MomJunction.

Outing Idea:

  • Start a Nature Journal Today.  Get outside on a hike, to a park or just around your own home to observe nature and then come back in a write about what you found.
  • Consider signing up for writing classes at the Loft Literary Center.
