Writing Ideas for Kids: Recycled Words, Color Sort, and Poems

Reuse your old magazines and find wonderful “found” poems within the pages.

1. Get your magazines out of your art / recycling box.

2. Cut out words and phrases.

3. OLDER CHILDREN: Play with the words to make poems.

5. YOUNGER CHILDREN: Color sort the words. We used the back of cereal box to sort our words into blue and red.

Have fun playing with words!
