Looking for Fun Fiction Writing Prompts for Kids?

It’s not easy to get kids pumped up about a writing assignment. Most kids think writing anything more than a few words is a real drag, and let’s face it – a lot of times in school, writing is a drag! Yet we all know that finding your inner muse and getting jazzed about an exciting assignment can be a thrill, too. The trick, of course, is finding fun fiction writing prompts that will really get the kids sharpening their pencils in excitement!

If you are looking for a few fun fiction writing prompts, here are some to get you started:

  • Pretend you are a butterfly caught in a thunderstorm outside. What would you do and where would you go?
  • Imagine that you are stranded on a deserted island. How did you get there? What do you find on the island that is interesting? How would you try to get rescued?
  • Write a story about being a baseball in a baseball game. What do you feel like? What do you see and hear?
  • If you could have any superhero powers, what powers would you have? What would be your superhero name? Write a story about a superhero adventure that you go on.

These are just a few fun fiction writing prompts that you can have your kids write about. It’s fun to write your own prompts, so feel free to use these as a basic starting point for your own unique ideas and customize them. Writing should be fun and exciting for kids, and it should also serve as a creative release that allows them to explore new worlds and discover new things about themselves in the process. Plus, each of these prompts, as well as others, can be made more challenging by asking kids to incorporate unique writing elements like one example of personification or one metaphor into their piece.
