EVERY child loves to daydream, whether about magical worlds or making this world a better place. If your kids need a writing warm-up this week, let them choose one of these journal prompts about dreams and wishes.
1. Stardust Stories
Do you ever wake up in the morning and wish your dream from the night before would come true? Write about one of those dreams and why it was so special to you.
2. Sweet Surprises
Best friends often share their dreams for the future. If you could make one wish come true for a friend, what would it be? Write a short poem (four to eight lines) about how you’d plan this wonderful surprise.
3. Magic in a Bottle
You have just discovered an ancient genie who will grant you three wishes. You may only ask for physical things, not intangible ideas such as “peace” or “happiness” or “fame.” What will you choose, and why?
4. Seeking Funds, Changing Lives
Imagine you are a fundraising coordinator for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants wishes for children with life-threatening diseases. Brainstorm three goals or ideas for raising money, and write a paragraph describing one of these strategies.
