Remember the thrill of excitement when you got your hands on a crisp new packet of gel ink pens as a kid? The ones with all the beautiful different colours and glitters, and you just couldn’t WAIT to write letters to your friends?
Well, as adults we’ll admit that our love affair with stationery hasn’t changed, but it has also made us realise that with the right tools, you can ignite your kid’s passion for writing!
Children love to express their creativity in so many ways, especially through colouring, sketching and writing journals. They are also naturally curious, which is often the way they become interested in things and learn new skills.

Woodless Pencils, Silky Crayons and special Notebooks are more than just craft supplies, they’re the building blocks that help improve your child’s learning and interest in new ideas and concepts.

Tips on how to encourage your kids to write
Read, read, read.
Children learn new words as they read. They absorb information on how to structure sentences and how to use new words effectively in their writing and speaking. Reading not only helps children to develop language and comprehension, but it also boosts their imagination. Kids love being read to, so continue reading aloud to them as long as you can!
Engage in conversations.
Talking is vital at all parts of a young writer’s process. Daily conversations help children generate ideas for what it is they want to write about. Talking helps them to draft fluently, to revise their writing, and to perfect their craft. Before asking them to write, get them talking. Engage them in a casual conversation without putting any pressure into writing like when you’re out in the park, driving to home, or when they’re playing with their toys. Open-ended questions are the best way to encourage them to speak.
Let them write freely, then give feedback after.
Children will have lots of errors in their spelling and sentence structures, especially first time writers. Hold back on correcting them and just let their creative juices flow. When they share their writing with you, praise them for their effort and then give specific feedback. Mention your favourite lines or part to help build their confidence as a writer.
