Mystery Writing Prompts

There are a few things from my elementary school days that I can vividly recall. First Grade was one of my favorite years, I had one of the best teachers in the area who taught with such passion and who created a learning environment that made me love learning. One of the things we did every day was writing prompts, and I still have my notebook filled with them up in the attic and I love looking back at the funny writings of a seven-year-old me.


I believe developing good writing habits is extremely important and should be started at a young age. This helps improve grammar, handwriting, and creativity. Creativity is especially important to cultivate at a young age. Daily writing prompts are great, especially for you who are either homeschooling for the first time this year or have moved to virtual learning.


Instead of just giving your student/child a simple writing prompt on a whiteboard or piece of the paper ditch the boring and add a touch of fun with this writing activity!
All you’ll need is a brown paper bag (or if you have a fun mug you have laying around as decorating- or is that just me?), and strips of paper with names of objects, people, places, or you can just use the prompts I’ve created below for easy print and cut!
I’ve also created the same prompts that you can download for yourself if you don’t want to add the mystery aspect/challenge to it.
