I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things after wrapping up writing my book (woo!!). I won’t lie, it’s been pretty hard switching gears from running the Woo! Jr. sites to book writing, and now back to writing and running the Woo! Jr. sites again. But now that June is here and the kids are out of school, I’m finding it a little easier to create new printables and projects again.
These writing prompts are great to help younger kids write up a special message for dad for Father’s Day, plus also help keep writing skills intact as summer starts to take over our brains. There are two more serious story starters about how much we love our dads, and a funny one to help kids imagine what life would be like if their dad was an alien. Think about it – you could celebrate the holidays in another galaxy and take vacations in a space ship! What a fun way to get your kiddo using his or her imagination.
Having your kid write his or her own Father’s Day story is also an awesome way to create a one-of-a-kind gift for Dad that he’ll probably want to keep forever. You could even mount it on construction paper and hang it up on the fridge or at Dad’s place of work. Heck, Grandpa might want one of these, too!

A fun idea for these is to have siblings each write their own story using the same prompt. (No comparing until they’re done!) It’s always interesting to see how such totally different stories can result from the same exact beginning.
