Creative writing for the young

I was not sure what the six year and eight year olds would do in a writing camp, when I accepted to do a summer camp for one of my friends.
Originally targetted at 12 year olds, the camp ended up with kids in a much younger group. But looking at the kids on day one, I couldn't resist continuing the camp.

It was partly fun, partly learning - both for the kids and me!

They learnt making their personal profile, made poetry calendar sheet, cracking a logic and making a story, news story ideas, components of a newspaper and how to write a short report!
This is the finale when they made up their daily working sheets together and took home their precious writings!
