February is the month of love. Valentine’s day is perfect for coming up with great creative writing topics for my students!

I’ve taken a slightly different angle, as I’ve created a Valentines day activity that can be used all year long. This activity is centered around being kind and finding the good in people. It’s more than just a February writing prompt, it is a writing idea that can be used anytime you feel your students need a reminder about gratitude and kindness. Creative writing prompts for kids are the perfect balanced activity that provides students with structure and support, i.e. topics to write about, but still allows the student to ‘choose their own adventure’, use their imagination and build their own sentences.

Creative writing topics: 

As I was creating the Valentine’s day writing prompts for kids, I began to really think about how to promote kindness while also giving students creative writing ideas that they can relate to. I often find that February writing prompts are too structured, so when I created the Valentine’s Day writing prompts for kids I tried to leave the questions open ended. It always helps to brainstorm ideas with the class as a whole to get the creative juices flowing – and model the type of thinking you want the students to engage in.

Spreading love and kindness is the focus of this resource: Valentines day writing prompts for kids. Differentiated paper sizes perfect for Kindergarten and up!

One of my favourite creative writing topics is ‘Random Acts of kindness’. When we talked about this as a class, it was truly amazing to see how many ideas my students came up with! 

We brainstormed ideas of random acts of kindness before starting our valentines day writing prompts for kids. Our focus was on random acts of kindness, and they truly came up with so many wonderful ideas!

The valentine’s day writing prompts for kids activity: 


After talking about ways we can help others, I had my students pick a card out of a bowl and then we read it out loud. Each card is a sentence starter and can be finished with the students own personal experience. Do a few of these together as a class and then let the students each take their own card away, write out their sentence and draw a picture of it.

Thinking about gratitude, kindness and making an effort to see the positive side is an important skill. It is not natural and the more we do this, the more positively we see the world around us. Gratitude journals are popular for a reason. Putting our thoughts into words and training ourselves to see things positively are exercises that are associated with higher resiliency, happiness, being more appreciative, more social and more trusting – just to name a few.
