Do you want to keep your kids entertained? Instead of games, craft, computer activities or playing with toys, ask the kids to write a short story about some topics you can list and they can choose from. Kids love creating stories. Story writing can be taken seriously, or be done just for fun to express feelings or tell a tale. Ideas for these kinds of short essay/stories can be seen here on the site. Use the prompts for ideas, or think up your own. Take a title from a book they know and tell them to write their own version of the story, or show them a picture and have them create a story about it.
