Describe Your Senses
This simple one-page printable features 40 tiny cards to use for creative writing prompts. Each card highlights one place (such as a bonfire, a graveyard, or a craft store) and 3 of the 5 senses. Simply pick a card, close your eyes, imagine yourself in that place, and write about what you hear, see, smell, taste, or feel.
This simple activity can be adapted for a variety of uses, from oral descriptions with a kindergarten group, journal ideas for middle school English class, to warm-ups for college creative writing classes.
Put them in a hat to draw randomly, or give each student a copy of the whole sheet to cross off as they use them. Have a little fun sharing each other’s writing — either different locations or different details of the same locations. Enjoy! 😀
