How to Make Writing Fun with Your Children

We are as parents are our children’s first teacher! With so many gadgets come into the market, and money is tight, we can reverse back to the good old days by living simpler. Reading and writing can be the new fun games again, and very low in costs.

Step One

Set aside an area in your house for writing. If your child has a desk, that is great, but if he/she doesn’t, use your kitchen table.

Step Two

Gather paper, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, crayons, and markers ahead of time, and set up your writing area.

Step Three

Every day, at the same time, encourage your children to sit down to write, or scribble, or drawing.

(When my son was a toddler, he dictated to me what he wanted me to write down, and then I read aloud to him. It usually brought a big smile to his face!)

Step Four

Make it fun! Help your children design a greeting card, or making sign for the garage sale, or writing down a grocery list.

When they see the result of their writing, they develop self-esteem confident, and learn from these activities!

Conclusion

  • If you want to bake cookies, dictate to your child the ingredients
  • If your child is still young, have him/her tell you the story, their imagination, their wish list, and write them down for them.
  • Remember to keep it fun, and no tears!
