Creative Prompts from The Book Chook
by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com
I have written a series of articles about different prompts to use for creativity. I provide the idea for the prompt, with some examples, and you and your kids or students get to respond any way you choose. NB: You can now scroll down to see the updated list embedded below.
In many articles, I include my own response to the prompt. Not because I think my response will be of merit - I've quit fooling myself about that! I want to share my response because I figure we're all, kids and adults, in this creativity thing together. Whether your creativity takes the form of writing, finger painting, cake decorating, knitting, photography, building or blogging - the creating is paramount, not the product. I hope that by sharing my efforts, you and your kids might be inspired to have a go yourselves.
Some other articles I've written about creativity are:
Thinking Creatively, Develop Imagination Through Literature-based Play, Create a Story Box, Recycle and Read, What's the Deal with Online Publishing?
