Write a story inspired by your local woods or your favourite tree
If your kids love writing, then get those creative juices flowing with a story challenge. Kick things off by giving them the first sentence and encouraging them to write the rest of the story.
You could also jot ideas on scraps of paper, then get kids to choose some at random that they have to incorporate into their story. These could include:
A tree has fallen in the woods
A character has gone missing
An animal is shouting an alarm call
There are some mysterious footprints to follow.
Gather together as a family and share the stories you’ve written. They’ll make great bedtime stories too when you’ve read all the books you have at home.
