17 Adventure Story Ideas & Prompts for Kids

Adventure Story Ideas for Kids— We know children love to read stories that have a lot of adventure in them. Some kids like to read about the magic of Harry Potter and imagine themselves in Hogwarts castle. Others imagine they are a Jedi and flying through space with Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars. With the exciting adventure writing prompts for kids listed below, students are encouraged to think about and write an adventure story of their very own.  

Adventure Story Writing Ideas for Kids

Kids also typically love to write about topics that engage their imaginations and children especially enjoy writing about topics that pique their imaginary minds.

The best writing topics for children are those which involve topics that kids can relate to or that fully engage their attention, and almost everyone has also had some adventures of their own – or at the very least has imagined some adventures that they would love to experience. To expand on these adventurous thoughts, we invite you to have your students undertake some adventure writing of their own.

So go ahead and share these fun, new writing prompt ideas with your kids and encourage them to use their creative writing skills as they craft their own imaginative adventure stories!

  1. Dear Jill,
    Thanks for this it has been helping my brother out a lot with writing so he can practice. He is interested in a lot of them and some have caught my eye even. I thought of a good one elementary kids perhaps.

    Imagine the stuff in your lunch bag became alive one day and escaped from your lunch kit and locker and was wandering around the school. Describe the adventures your lunch had before it made it’s way back to your locker and lunch bag. Remember this happens all before lunch that day.

    I think it would make a good prompt or story starter for kids.

  2. I think this is a fantastic story starter for kids. Thank you for sharing it with me and my all blog readers!!! πŸ˜€
