40 FREE Christmas Writing Prompts For Kids Aged 5-14

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

Christmas is soon to be upon us, and I don’t know about you, but in December most of our homeschool days revolve around Christmas!! As such I have created these free Christmas writing prompts for you to have fun with.

I have created 30 printable pages with the prompts as below, but I have also included 10 blank pages for you to make up your own.

Christmas is such a wonderful time of year, and for us, we take a break from our normal 6th grade homeschool curriculum and focus entirely on Christmas activities. These Christmas writing prompts are a perfect way to continue with school work, but still, have fun. These shouldn’t take any more than 30 minutes to an hour.

To get your free downloads of all of these letter templates please scroll to the bottom of this post.

I have broken these Christmas writing prompts into elementary-aged students and middle schoolers. But of course if your middle schooler prefers one of the elementary Christmas writing prompts that is totally fine. The main point of this activity is to encourage writing.
