KidZone:  Easter Creative Writing Prompts

Introduction:

These creative writing prompts are a fun Easter activity.  I like to introduce them on April 10th which is "National Encourage a Young Writer Day" and usually falls sometime near Easter each year. 

Each worksheet provides a different inspiration to help spark a child's creative writing.
