25 Journaling Prompts for Kids

by Paper House

Daily journaling is a great way for kids to develop communication skills, stimulate creativity and explore emotions. Plus it can be lots of fun! We’ve compiled a list of journaling prompts to help inspire kids into the habit of writing every day.

Encourage the addition of drawing and coloring to supplement or even replace writing for younger children. Ask older kids to expand on their ideas and write more. All that matters is they take the ideas and run with them.

Give a prompt each day and try to be consistent about the time that you assign it. Getting into a routine helps keep the practice going. The prompts range from silly to serious and can be used in order. Or feel free to skip around and add in any of your own ideas!
