25 Holiday Writing Prompts for Kids

The holiday season is here, and it is so much fun!

With all the festivities, traditional foods, and cultural celebrations that come with holidays, holiday journaling can be the icing on the cake!  Holiday journaling brings more holiday excitement and holiday spirit while at the same time giving children the opportunity to write about real-life and holiday-themed topics. Holiday journaling also improves your child’s knowledge about their culture and allows them to analyze their beliefs about holiday experiences.
