NEW Color & Create a Story Worksheets spark CREATIVITY!

Most children have a natural creative streak but sometimes it is hard for them to get an idea out of their heads and onto a piece of paper. That’s why I’m currently creating my NEW “Color & Create a Story” Worksheets.

These are all designed to spark children’s imagination by providing them a picture on which to base their story. First, your child (or students) will color a picture. Then, they are given space to create a story about the picture!

Here are several examples of my NEW worksheets:
