Part 4 of 7 FUN Summertime Journaling Activities--Adventure!

I can't believe it! It has taken me most of the summer to finish blogging about FUN Summertime journaling activities. Back to school approaches, the sales are already in progress. But maybe it's not too late to share 2 more journaling activities.

Number 6 on my list is the Adventure Journal, not to be confused with the Travel Journal.

The Adventure Journal is similar to the travel journal, but it is NOT confined to reality. This journal is limited only by your imagination or the imagination of your kids.

First, you and your child decide on where or when you want to go. a few suggestions would be Outer Space, an African Safari, Jurassic Jungle, or maybe an event like signing the Declaration of Independence, the First Christmas, or life on Grandpa's farm when he was a child. The possibilities are endless. Make a list because you all may want to do this again and again.

Next, do some research together. Google your place or time, find out what you can. You can use books like The Magic Treehouse series.

Make or find a notebook for writing what happened to your child on a certain day with room for drawing things imagination sees or does. Set up prompts for your child as needed.

Make a cover that reflects your child's journey.

Make a small travel kit with inexpensive binoculars, extra pencils, some little souvenir from your place or time, transport tickets, and the journal.

Take the trip together! This is the best part. You can explore anything on the Internet. Copy pictures to put in the journal. Interview people who may have been there. 

Bon Voyage!

Number 7 on my list is The Write Your Own Story Journal.
Print off some lined paper for kids in my FREE Library of Printables. The first page has space for drawing the story. Or, use regular composition notebooks for older kids.

Most kids have plenty of stories locked inside, but if they have trouble starting you could give them a prompt.

OR...

You could use The Write Workbook for Young Authors. This workbook takes the young author from brainstorming, writing, rewriting, critiquing, editing, to publishing on the home computer.

The Write Journal helps teen and adult writers organize their thoughts, timelines, characters and plots with 3 blank monthly calendars to keep track of word counts and important dates. 3 months worth of journaling pages help the writer set goals and track their progress.

No matter what, keep journaling!

Always,

A Big Help

This is something I made to keep myself on track.
Some days are very productive. Why? What makes the difference?
If I track my goals I know precisely where I left off and what I need to accomplish next. I'm a big list maker and this has check-off boxes. It is very satisfying to check off that little box!
