400 Fun Journal Prompts For Kids Of All Ages

Journaling is a great activity not only for adults but for children and teens as well. There are many benefits to introducing journal prompts to kids.

Many of the benefits of writing in a journal that are experienced by adults can also be experienced by kids.

The very act of learning to sit in quiet and listen to your thoughts can be helpful to young people in many aspects of their lives.

Journaling also provides youth with a way to deal with difficult things like the separation of parents, or the death of someone close.

It can also make them more aware of their surroundings, and the gifts that we are given from nature.

The practice of gratitude can never be started too young, and can teach children much about recognizing good things in their lives even if they don’t have the latest toy, or haven’t gone to Disney World.

Come along with me as I talk about seven different categories of journaling prompts to help your kids begin what could become a life-long activity.

1. Creative Journal Prompts For Kids

Creativity is an important aspect to develop in our children. Kids are naturally creative, and journaling can be a way to increase that creativity.

The following prompts get kids using their imagination. Here are a couple of great ones!

What New Story Idea Would You Pitch To Netflix?

Create A Bucket List.

As you read through the list of prompts you will see that there is incredible variety, and that some of the prompts are better suited to older kids while others are more for young children.

There are also prompts in this category that have kids think about themselves, such as what they like about themselves, and what one thing they would change if they could.

A procedural writing prompt has kids give step-by-step instructions for making a peanut butter sandwich.

This is a great way to help kids use their logical, first this and then this part of their brain.

There are ‘would you rather’ prompts as well!

There are oodles of fun prompts here, so get your kids thinking and writing!

3. Creative Journaling Prompts For Teens

During the teen years the part of the brain responsible for emotion and creativity is on fire. This is the perfect time to engage your teen in the act of journaling.

The teenage years can be a challenging time for young people but also an exciting time. Youth undergo many physical, mental, and emotional changes during these years.

Teenagers often show behaviors that test the boundaries. They question their parents’ authority and sometimes try new things that may not always represent healthy choices.

As young adults push to separate themselves from their parents and try to find their place in the world, they begin to formulate their own set of beliefs and values.

Journaling provides an outlet for teens to express their thoughts, ideas, and frustrations.

Have your teen check out the journaling prompts in this list and see what inspires them.

Helping our kids to learn about gratitude is one of the best things we can do for them.

An attitude of gratitude can do much to put our minds in a positive place and teaching our children to practice this will not only benefit them now, but in the future.

Journal Bannar

It is good for children to learn not to take things for granted, and to be aware of the good things in their lives.

Gratitude journaling can start at a young age. Even kids who are not yet printing can be encouraged to draw pictures of what they are grateful for.

The practice should be encouraged as your child grows up and it can be a very beneficial habit for teens.

Choose a time when your child is able to focus and make the activity fun! Enjoy this time with your kids, and you’ll end up feeling more grateful too!

5. Journal Prompts For Kids About Money

I grew up in a family where money was a topic that wasn’t talked about. All that achieves is having children who don’t know much about finances or how to handle their money.

Parents can teach their children good money habits even at a young age. This can result in good financial habits throughout a person’s life.

One way to develop money sense in kids is through journaling. A great prompt to get kids thinking and talking about money is: You’ve won $10,000 in the lottery. Would you give any money away? Why or why not?

This prompt is suitable for kids who are young as well as older.

Check out the whole list of money journaling prompts for kids and start the ball rolling with your child!

6. Journaling Prompts For Kids About The Month Of December

December is a month that is ideal to get kids journaling! There are so many topics kids can think and write about at this time of the year.

The celebration of Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa can be the motivation for journaling about family traditions and what makes them special.

This is also a good time of year for kids to do some reflecting on gift giving and what sorts of gifts they can give that do not have a price tag attached.

In December, many families take vacation time. Perhaps your child would like to write about their favorite holiday.

For those kids who live where there is snow, it can be great fun to write about their favorite snow activities. This works particularly well with young children.

December, as the last month of the calendar year, also suggests reflecting on the past year. Get kids to think about what the highlights of that year are for them.

Especially suitable for older kids and teens are journaling prompts about the new year.

What are their goals for the new year? Do they want to try something new or maybe learn about something in particular?
