Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

As Christmas is nearly upon us, we like to put away our core curriculum and focus more on educational Christmas activities. Download our free 12 days of Christmas wishes writing prompts below and encourage the kids to write!

I always find that when my son can write about something he loves he can write endlessly. But when he HAS to write something he will write the absolute minimum required.

These 12 days of Christmas writing prompts for kids can also be used with our free 12 days of Christmas coloring pages.
