June Writing Ideas for Fun and Enjoyment

Summer is a time for relaxation and fun, but it also possesses a certain freeing air of possibility. 

I mean…

In the summer, kids have the chance to explore new things that they might not otherwise try during the school year. From spending time with new friends to starting a different routine, summer is the perfect time of year for kids to stretch their limits and find new aspects of their personalities.

Try Something New with these June writing Prompts

This June, writers who use the following June writing prompts and journal prompts try something new every single day. Some tasks are simple, like trying a new food or reading a new book—while others will require a little more creativity, such as creating a new language or spending a day without electronics.


Some of our June Writing prompts will challenge students as they work to help out more around the house or interview their grandparents about their lives. At the end of the day, students will journal about their experiences. By writing about what they did and the experience of trying something new, students enjoy the chance to branch out and see the benefits of pushing themselves toward new activities.

The summer offers a sense of freedom that is hard to find during the rest of the year. Encourage kids to explore new boundaries and seek out variety every day this June!
