Public Speaking for Kids

You may find it odd that you have to search the internet to discover something to get your kids talking. Most of the time the problem is kids talk far too much!

If your child has been asked to deliver a speech in class, at Scouts or a local public speaking club, you may find their ideas and desire to talk suddenly dry up.

Worry not, for we at Public Speaking for Kids can help. Below we have a list of topics for speeches for kids that may inspire them to open their mouths again. If you need more help you can download some of our speech templates to get the creative ball rolling for your kid's speech.


For age group 15-18, male or female:

1.       Why recycling is so important

2.       All children should be given a chance to explore nature
