Writing exercises for kids–suggestions?

You may remember a couple weeks back I talked about a kids writing workshop I’m running this month. I think it’s going really well and the kids are turning out some great stories, but I am finding that a few of the kids are finishing a lot faster than the others, which means I need to find something for them to do. It’s not so much that they write faster, but that they write less for each part of their stories, and each of my prods to “write more about X” leads to them maybe adding another sentence or two.

So I’d like to offer them writing exercises that would give them some practice in fleshing out action and description. Anyone have suggestions of some that would be fun? I figure I’ll come up with something better picking your brains than just on my own. :)
