Writing Challenge for Kids is a fun and simple-to-use app that can help spark the imagination of children, and support them with planning and writing stories. Children are presented with a range of prompts that they can choose from. Each prompt gives children ideas for how to start and develop their story, including references to settings and character, which keeps their imagination flowing throughout the process. 

Teacher Review

Writing Challenge for Kids – Creative Prompts and Ideas To Spark Children’s Inspiration and Creativity is a fantastic app that has a place in every English Language Arts classroom. We love how this straightforward app asks children to apply critical thinking skills to creative writing. Children could definitely use this app at home for creative play and storytelling.

Writing Challenge relies on its timer feature to help incite ideas on the spot, which can be just what some kids need when trying to write a story. Although enthusiastic writers can choose longer time limits to further develop an idea, shorter time limits might help encourage reluctant writers to simply write a little at a time. In either case, the timer helps give each prompt a sense of urgency, encouraging kids to simply get their ideas down on paper. As they add steps, kids can move beyond formulaic stories and traditional plot patterns, developing highly creative narratives. Writing Challenge's goal is to help kids get started, and it does this well. 

Kids will love having a mission to complete when it comes to storytelling. They can take these prompts as serious or silly as they like. Children will like that the countdown clock puts the pressure on so that they have to stay focused on the task.
