I’ve always enjoyed writing as a child. I never was really forced to write, except for punishment, but I used to write a ton of stuff!
My mom used to be a representative for Nest Entertainment and when she left, my mom gave me all her old order form slips and I would fill them all out, pretending to be some sort of business woman or a excited client. I’d always love to get new forms to fill out. With an old computer keyboard, a clip board, invalid order forms, and some sort of box for a computer screen, I had hours of fun writing and pretend play!
It is very difficult for my mom to buy gifts for children unless they have some sort of learning aspect to them. For girls, we often get them a pack of cards and a book of stamps; for boys, anything that’ll teach them some skill, like a carpentry set or slingshot.
Writing Gifts for Kids:
This game looks so good! It can really bring out the thought provoking process of story-telling. The game is originally meant to be a verbal story, but why can’t you write the story? All you have to do is simply pull out two yellow cards to choose who your characters are and a blue card to provide you with your story’s settings. Storymatic seems like it can definitely prompt your child’s imaginiation.
Let your child use there creative mind and make a setting for their story! Maybe it’s about a group of farm animals who have to work together to get an apple from an apple tree, or a new animal comes to the barn and makes a new friend? Let them make a platform for their story.
An introductory journal for kids, which offers wide lines for beginning writers and blank pages for drawings for photos created by your child, and simple prompts to get your kids writing, such as: ‘What I did today’, ‘Favorite part of the day’, ‘Least favorite part of the day’, ‘What I learned today’, ‘Nice things I did for others’, and ‘I am thankful for’. A true keepsake.
This used to be a gift I’d receive a long time ago. I would get so tickled-pink when I would get a package of note cards (mostly blank cards) and a book of stamps. (I can be strange that way…). With these cute and empty cards, your children can have a beginning for pen-pal-ship.
This kit is perfect for any little kid. Who doesn’t want to write their own books? With this set your child can draw their own pictures, write their story, and decorate it as they desire! It is even pop-up compatible.
I knew a kid who LOVED making his own comic scripts, but could never find a kit to make it “realistic.” This was on my mind the whole time I was writing this post, because I knew this would make your boys at least interested in writing, but at the same time, doing something fun and interesting!
I’ve seen this game at local stores often and was really intrigued in the idea of making a total random story from a roll of dice. There can be so many possibilities. I think this game and the one above would be perfect for homeschoolers. It can bring an element of fun but with a lot of educational benefits. Although these stories are supposed to be oral, writing them would give them a lot of great spelling and grammar practice, as well.
To close this post out, I wanted to highlight on really unique idea, so when I saw these pencils, I knew this would be a GREAT writing gift for kids. These are the coolest pencils, EVER! Don’t you agree? It brings a whole new level to the excitement of writing. I really think the boys will like them. Really fun stuff.
I like giving the gift of creativity, especially to little kids, who need to figure out who they are and what they are good at. With these creative gifts I found out what I enjoyed doing.
What are some writing gifts you have given to others?
