How To Use Christmas Journal Prompts

I love Christmas writing Prompts because they are so easy to use. All you have to do is download the printable and cut them out! To keep using them year after year, simply laminate them.

There are several ways you can use journal prompts. After cutting them out, you can put them in a basket to have them choose a prompt each day to write about. Or you can glue the writing prompt onto a page in their journal. Repeat it on several pages so they are ready to write about a new prompt each day that week. 

You can even include a line for them to write the date so it’s even easier to look back on next year!

Benefits of Using Journal Prompts

When it comes to using Christmas journal prompts, there are several benefits. Since your kids will have a holiday break, it’s important to keep up on their writing while they aren’t in school. 

Using our Christmas journal prompts makes it so you don’t have to worry because their writing skills will stay sharp! With fun topics, they will even enjoy writing! Christmas journal prompts will also help your kids remember all their favorite Christmas memories.

After they are done writing, you can talk about the prompt as a family. Discussing the daily journal prompt will help them verbally express themselves and help you bond as a family. So what are you waiting for? Grab your Christmas journal prompts and inspire writing in your home this Christmas season!
