Sometimes all it takes to encourage kids to write is a special journal, pen, or eraser. See what happens when you give your child a writing gift. Maybe stories or plays will be written!
1. Grow Your Ideas Notebook
Plot your thoughts in these little eco-friendly notebooks made with plantable seed paper covers. When the pages are filled, plant the cover in your garden and watch wildflowers bloom.
2. Volcano Island Creative Story Cards
The latest in eeBoo’s Tell Me a Story line of cards to inspire storytelling. (We LOVE these!)
3. Wild Horse Lock & Key Diary
Give a girl you know a gift that is sure to get her dreaming, thinking, creating, and musing about her world.
4. Pirate Lock & Key Journal
Children love a locked book where they can record their private musings, their dreams, their thoughts, – even their doodles. Dream, write and imagine the possibilities!
5. Think Happy Be Happy Journal
With a bright flower design, this spiral-bound journal from Natural Life features a quote that says, “Think Happy Be Happy.” Includes 100 ruled pages.
6. Chill & Spill: A Place to Put it Down & Work it Out
An appealing journal that helps you articulate and transform issues you are dealing with through creative writing and expressive art activities. Created to help teens with the emotional fall out from life, the book has been used by victims of the hurricanes, teachers, counselors, and others who know the value of utilizing your imagination to rise above challenges.
7. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself-Book
This innovative interactive journal based on Greg Heffley’s own “diary” lets kids express themselves in an exciting new way.
8. Suitcase Personalized Set
This super fun gift set not only looks great on the outside but is even more fun when you open it! With some personalized notecards, personalized notebook, 6 awesome pencils, an eraser and a sharpener! Everything one could need, really!
9. Sniffy Cupcake Scented Pen
The Snifty Scented Pen are retractable ballpoint pen with black ink.
10. Pencil Broom
Pencil with a mini broom head eraser makes for easy sweeping away mistakes.
11. Eco Friendly Recycled Pencil Set (blue, pink, green, orange, red, yellow)
These modern eco-friendly paper pencils are not only stylish, but functional for all ages. They are made using rolled layers of 100% recycled colored paper. As you sharpen each one, the color changes around the lead and creates a unique marble design.
12. Livescribe 2 GB Echo Smartpen Starter Pack
Record everything you hear, say and write, while linking your audio recordings to your notes. Quickly replay audio from your Livescribe paper, a computer, or a mobile device – all with a simple tap on your handwritten notes. I think this would be great for ADHD kids who sometimes lose focus and need to go back over what the teacher said.
13. Rubber Barber Eraser Set
Play barber when you make a mistake and have fun slowly shaving away their “hair”! Be creative and style your own funky hairdo with these cute little heads.
I don’t know about you but new journals and pens make me dash off to write. (I may be a bit of a notebook hoarder actually.)
Hope these get your young writers writing lots and lots!
