Drawing Ideas & Writing Prompts
This printable spring drawing ideas list is perfect for encouraging reluctant writers too. Just pair a fun drawing activity with a writing prompt and get ready for creative writing fun! Here are a few fun ideas to get you and your littles started this spring:
- Bicycle: Learn about the history of bicycles and design the perfect bicycle and write about why it’s so fantastic.
- Chick: Learn about the life cycle of a chicken and write a story about a day in the life of a baby chick. Don’t forget to give your chick a fun name.
