Valentine writing prompts for kids

by | Feb 10, 2016 | Writing & Journal Prompts

These Valentine writing prompts for kids will stir up some creativity as they write a love letter from a pet, think of reasons why they love someone, dream up a yummy Valentine dessert, or recall a personal experience. If Valentine’s Day has come and gone already, fear not! Your children can use these prompts any time.

1. Puppy Love

Pretend you’re a dog or cat. Write a letter to your owner thanking them for taking care of you and telling them the many reasons you feel loved.

2. Why Do I Love You?

Think of someone who is special to you. Make a list of ten reasons you love them. Put your list inside a Valentine card and give or mail it to them in time for Valentine’s Day.

3. Sweet Treats

Imagine that you are known far and wide for your baking and cake-decorating skills. Every year for Valentine’s Day, you design a signature creation to sell at the local bakery. What will you make this year? Will it be a fancy cake? An assortment of cake pops or cupcakes? A special Valentine’s Day cookie assortment?

What does your creation look like? How is it decorated? When you take a bite, how does it feel in your mouth? What does it taste like? Choose one, and write a paragraph describing it with vivid, mouth-watering words. 

Valentine writing prompts for kids invite them to write a love letter from a pet, think of reasons they love someone, or plan a tasty Valentine dessert.

4. You Gotta Have Heart

Have you heard the expression, “It’s raining cats and dogs”? This is known as an idiom. An idiom is a saying or phrase that, over time, has taken on a special meaning that’s quite different from the words it contains. “Raining cats and dogs,” for example, doesn’t really mean animals are falling from the sky! It’s just an expression describing a heavy rainstorm.

A number of popular idioms include the word heartsuch as the ones below. Choose one and write a paragraph telling about a time when you:

  • Put your heart into something.
  • Didn’t have the heart to do something.
  • Followed your heart.
  • Had a change of heart.
