My daughter kept a journal all year in kindergarten this past school year. I loved the idea and thought it was a great way to get children writing creatively. I thought continuing with the journal throughout the summer would be a wonderful way to keep her writing and capture some great memories.
How We Did It
Storytelling paper works great for this. That way a younger child can also draw pictures in their journals. You can also just draw lines on blank sheets of paper.
We used a large sheet of blank paper as our cover and folded it book style to hold our storytelling sheets.
A few staples and our journal was made. Emma covered the staples with a strip of purple masking tape.
She was excited to make the cover extra special for summer.
Her first entry. I have a feeling this will be going into the special treasure box after summer. I plan to do this each summer and save them for her for years to come.
