Inspire Creativity with April Writing Prompts
Some of the writing prompts center around the Lenten season and will help our children walk through the days leading to Easter.
For these particular prompts, your child will be encouraged to look through passages in the Bible and share their thoughts and reflections.
This would also be a great way to open into a time of family devotion and reflection if your family takes on these writing activities together.
Besides Easter-inspired writing prompts, this month also includes prompts that will require a little research to study more about the historical event or personality.
For instance, National Winston Churchill Day and Thomas Jefferson Day.
On the flip side, we have prompts that will tickle those imagination wheels like National Animal Crackers Day, National Garlic Day, and National Pigs In A Blanket Day!
Yes, it’s true – there is a day to celebrate everything under the sun!

These creative writing prompts are more than just another activity to cross off on the list of academic things your child should do.
They’re a great way to get kids excited about writing, fuel creativity, strengthen a child’s vocabulary, and help develop strong literary communication skills that will be an incredible asset when your child is older.
By planting the seed of a love of writing in your child, you help grow a tree with strong foundations in today’s world.
If your child has never been introduced to creative writing, then there’s no better time like now.
Louis L’Amour said this- “Start writing no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
