E. got a journal for her name day in July. At first, she wasn’t very interested, but now she is getting the hang of it. I presented her with a journal because I want her to draw more, which she doesn’t like much. Secondly, we are a journal writing family, and I only hope she’ll join the club.
I got some journal ideas on pinterest, some of which I’ve collected in a new board.
So here it is what E.’s first journal look like:
I simply bought a cheap notepad with thicker sheets in it as I don’t want markers to leave a stain on several pages. I covered the top with blue cardboard and stuck felt letters on it. (Actually, her first task was to stick letter E in the front. As you see it’s a little crooked 🙂 )
|Some ideas are taken from Teaching 2 & 3 year olds|
I also added pages like “Draw your Mommy” or ” Draw a picture of you”. But she hasn’t had any intention to look at those pages.
She was much more interested in the numbers and letters.
I was also influenced by Mama.Papa.Bubba blog journaling idea.
Aaaand (beat of a drum) her first drawing of a lovely weekend memory:
I really hope this will be a successful project in the long run and she’ll embrace this sort of memory collection. Fingers crossed. I’ll come back with some more feedback on journal writing.
