Summer Journal

Summer Journal

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:

Materials List

  1. paper
  2. stapler
  3. masking tape
  4. colored pencils
  1. 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.

  2. We used a large sheet of blank paper as our cover and folded it book style to hold our storytelling sheets.

  3. A few staples and our journal was made. Emma covered the staples with a strip of purple masking tape.

  4. She was excited to make the cover extra special for summer.

  5. 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.
