Here are some fun poetry games made just for kids:

1) The Funny Poem Machine is a mad-lib type of application. Fill in a short list of questions–crazy adjective, awesome verb, etc. And the machine will give pack a poem guaranteed to make you laugh.

2) The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) provides an app to help you create an acrostic poem. There’s even a brainstorming step built into the process.

3) Scholastic Books offers up a free Poetry Idea Engine on their site.

Writing is fun, and these applications might make it even moreso!
