Wendy Jayne Scott, my author friend from New Zealand, offers writing prompts to engage young people in storytelling by firing up their imaginations (ages 6-up)
Here are 3 examples from her book of 12 prompts:
- It’s Christmas Eve, and you’re supposed to be tucked up in bed, but you sneak downstairs to check if Santa has stopped by. The stockings are still empty. You hear a noise, so you crouch behind the sofa and hide. Who comes in and what happens?
- This Christmas decoration contains one magic wish. What do you wish for?
- Close your eyes and imagine all the special Christmas smells wafting from the kitchen. Describe how Christmas smells and tastes.
