Aimed at all ages and abilities, these worksheets have been specially designed to encourage your child to put pen to paper.

And my daughter Catherine has gone on to design some specially for you with her own drawings as inspiration.

So you can be sure these worksheets come with a special kids seal of approval.

There's lots of fantastic creative writing ideas here all designed to encourage your child to have a go themselves, starting with the very young and moving on through high school age as you go down the page.

There are lots of ways you can encourage creative writing when you're home schooling, but I know just how hard it can be when you're faced with a reluctant writer.

Whatever I tried, my son William hated writing in our homeschool!

If getting your child to write is something you're struggling with, have a look at our homeschool help which has lots of suggestions given by a whole range of homeschoolers.

And I thought it might be nice for you to see the creative writing ideas that were actually successful with these homeschool printable worksheets.

Many of them are illustrated with my daughter Catherine's drawings - I bribed her!

Whatever stories your kids choose to write, you can be sure the work they do will help with whatever English curriculum you decide to follow.

In fact, if you can get your child writing stories they love, you'll find all their English skills improve.
