Homeschool Buyers Co-op BBB Business Review

Free Writing Tips

The Co-op is pleased to present free writing tips from Julie Bogart, the creator of the popular Brave Writer writing curriculum.


Here's a good activity for a rainy, cold, or cloudy day when you must stay indoors. Talk with your kids about colors and how they brighten our lives. The bright orange sun, red roses blooming in the yard, a patchwork quilt on a bed, a bowl of fresh fruit, autumn leaves, and so on. Discuss what a black and white world might be like.

Then pass out paper and colored pens, pencils, or crayons and ask everyone to draw a black and white picture of their choice (no artistry required). Next color it and then talk about the contrasting emotions they felt when drawing without color and then filling in color. Encourage them to give their drawing a title.
