Free Comic Strip Printables

No Comments

My tween loves doing three things: reading graphic novels, drawing and writing! He has quite an imagination. He grabs any blank sheet of paper and starts scribbling away. His favorite part? Sharing his story with me.

To continue encouraging his love for writing I’ve created these comic strip printables for him to use. I’ve created a Spanish titled version, too that’s great for bilingual kids!

Now let’s talk about the benefits, shall we? There are so many benefits in encouraging creative writing in children: It boosts their imagination and creativity, allows for self-expression and for them to freely write what’s on their minds. It encourages them to think outside the box when writing on the who, what, why, when and where. My personal favorite: It’s also a great screen-free activity for them to do.

On Friday evenings I babysit two of little ones friends. One of the girls made this comic strip. She drew herself, her sister and my son! I love it!

Below I’m sharing some of the graphic novels that he enjoys reading. They are affiliate links if you make a purchase I’ll receive a small monetary compensation. Our personal favorite in Spanish is El cartero del espacio. He was pretty bummed that a series doesn’t exist for this graphic novel.

The printables are in an 8×10 jpeg file. You can print in “full size” on an 8 1/2 x 11 paper or just copy and paste. Happy writing!
