It’s already back to school season. Can you believe it?
Personally, I’ve had a wonderful summer break and I am not in any way ready to get back to class. I have a pretty strong hunch my kids feel the same way.
But, like it or not, summer is coming to an end. So, I thought it would be a little easier to get back to ELA with this easy creative writing activity about summer vacation!
We usually take a vacation each summer. This year, we went camping for the first time. And we didn’t die!
My kids had a lot to say about that trip, but I also wanted to encourage them all to write about it, including my younger learners.
This simple vacation-themed creative writing prompt is great, because it’s a bite-sized lesson. So if you have reluctant writers, they won’t be intimidated by it at all.

Travel Tales! Vacation Creative Writing Activity for Kids
To use this vacation creative writing activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Child-safe scissors (optional)
- Colored pencils (optional)
This activity includes five pages of prompts: four with different colors and a line art version.
I found it best to print it on cardstock, because I wanted kids to be able to cut out their finished writing and hang it up on the wall.
If you use the line art version, kids can color in the suitcase themselves!
Students can use this activity to describe their actual vacations or to write about places they’d like to go. And, since it’s evergreen, you can use it any time there’s a school break, including, fall, winter, and spring.
