Fun creative writing activities
There are 3 parts to this set – the dice, the drawing/writing pages, and the booklet.
There are 4 dice – two for adjectives, one for nouns, and a final one for verbs. We talk about parts of speech a lot while doing mad libs, but this way a great way to reinforce the idea that the adjectives describe the nouns.
So the first step is to roll your dice. We just started with the adjectives and nouns as we really just wanted to create a character. The first one we got was a Majestic, Confused Trash Can.
That was definitely motivational! We found the irony quite amusing.
Fun writing activities for kids
We used the drawing page to sketch a picture and write one sentence.
Then we used the 8-page mini book (see how to make them here!) to write a few more facts, hobbies, and draw another photo.
I love the mini book because it’s something they can create and own.
Fun writing activities for kindergarten
We didn’t use the verb die, but if you find your kids are stuck on what their character can do, use it for inspiration!
