Journal With Your Kiddos

My dear friend Stephanie from Somewhat Simple just launch her first e-journal for kids.  This is perfect for the child that loves to write or doodle.  My daughter isn’t old enough to do this yet but I am sure at age 6 she would love this.  I got a copy of it and each page is so colorful and totally appeals to kids.  Here is what she says about it…

Do you ever wish you could take a peak into your child’s young mind and see what it is that makes them think, feel and act how they do? Do you sometimes worry that you’re not communicating with them very well or that you might be missing a teachable moment to help them grow, feel safe, and loved?

Are you ready to spend time with them individually and no longer miss out on the details of their day?!?

I know parenting isn’t easy… but it is one of the most rewarding things any of us will ever be a part of! (So many ups & downs, am I right?!) I’ve shared plenty of fun activities on my blog that encourage us to spend time with our children, but the idea I am going to share with you today takes it even one step further.

“Life According to Me” is a darling child’s journal written by Stephanie from Somewhat Simple that will help you capture their youth and give you an inside glimpse into your child’s thoughts and feelings.

It’s more than a boring journal with lined pages- it is fun & interactive with 30 pages of daily prompts, fill-in-the-blanks, and spaces for kids to draw and doodle. If you can get your kid’s creative juices flowing and open the door for communication, you’ll catch a better glimpse of what is going on in their little brains.

Perfect for kids of all ages!

Older kids can write their thoughts, little kids can use the space to draw pictures or you can encourage them to do a combination of both!

One of the best features of this journal is the spot on each page for your child to write a letter to you and the space for your response.

{You’ll love this amazing portal into your child’s mind!}

They write about ANYTHING they want – from funny things that happened at school, to questions about their science projects and information about their secret crush. Get ready to experience moments of their day that you would have missed and the small details of their lives you could have easily brushed aside. Your response will show your appreciation for them, to make sure they know that you love them. Validate their thoughts so they know they were heard and share bits of wisdom when a moment presents itself. These letters will create a place for you to communicate with each other frequently.

Keep It Fun: You don’t want this magic passageway to close up or disappear, so keep journal writing fun!

Stephanie has the following suggestion that she implemented with her kids: “I decided I would let each of them pick one weeknight where they get to stay up 10-15 minutes passed bedtime and climb in my bed where we can write in our journals, together. It is amazing what a later bedtime does for a kid! They get to stay up while their siblings go to bed, and I get to spend some individual time with each of my kids learning more about them. It is a win-win!”

  1. I adore this idea! The kiddo I nanny for is 4, and she loves to write. You just spell out the words for her. I think she would so enjoy this. I usually keep a small log of funny/sweet/silly things she says and does. They grow up so fast! I love journaling and worked out so many things growing up by writing in a diary or journal.

    • Awww that is sweet, she probably would enjoy it. I would have loved to do it back and forth with a nanny or family member. I loved writing notes when I was little.

  2. This is such a great idea. When I homeschooled our kids many, many moons ago, I had them keep a journal, but it was just a simple notebook- so hard to come up with ideas for them every day. We still enjoy looking back at those journals, though, and I know they’ll treasure them as the years go by.

  3. Becki, I LOVE this idea! Natalie (my 7 year old) got a diary for Christmas, but I think it would be helpful for her to have something with prompts. Thanks for sharing this with us. :)

    • You are welcome. My son hates writing so I don’t think he would get into it (although I am going to try). But when Kayla is older, she’d be all over it.

  4. Oops…I totally misspelled your name too. Sorry..typo!! :s
