Writing Journals

on January 31, 2014

I recently became a Cub Scout Den Leader, and I was trying to think of an activity for the boys to do while they arrived and I found some ideas for writing prompts and decided I would put together a journal for each boy. Every week I put a new writing prompt in the journal for the boys to do for the first 10 minutes of scouts. The first pages look like:

Other Ideas:

What do you want to be when you grow up and why?

If you could be any animal which one would you be and why?

If you could eat lunch with anyone who would it be and why?


If you are interested in doing journals for scouts, activity days or home school you can find a lot of writing ideas at Playful Learning.

What I really like about this activity is that you can use it for just about any age group and it can be as simple or complicated as you want to make it. We will be doing several different kinds of writing prompts including the boys writing their own stories to drawing their favorite knots once they have passed off “Tying it Up!”

The boys have really responded well to writing in their journals and they think it is fun, though sometimes a bit silly. The writing prompts really get them thinking and smiling, and it helps to bring out their fun personalities!

I found the bear image from this link, I just googled “bears” and found it.
