Creative Writing Ideas

There are lots of ways to make writing fun for children. This scavenger story bag idea is great for active children because it lets them let off a little steam before sitting down to write their story. It also gives some structure to the story that helps reluctant writers a lot.

creative writing ideas - scavenger hunt instructions

You can see that the instructions for this activity are quite simple, but there are lots of ways to vary the theme by changing the nature of the hunt.

You could also add a few surprise items into the bag so the children will not know what to expect when they pull something out of it!

Sometimes I make 'themed' bags filled with items around a theme - so we have used a gold theme for example, where I added some gold rush memorabilia.
