Summer Journal Keeping and Writing for Kids

It’s the first day of summer and, as usual, I have journaling on my mind.  I thought maybe you would too.  Maybe you have some summer journaling in mind for your kids.  I think that is a fantastic idea!

Through journaling, children can explore their thoughts and get to know their desires and beliefs in a new way. This is just one of the many reasons that I am such a HUGE fan of journal keeping, for kids (and for people of all ages).

With the following writing prompts and activities about summer, kids will love the opportunity to write about one of their favorite topics of all. SUMMER!Summer Journaling Ideas

Journaling is an important skill for kids to develop, as it allows them a new vehicle of expression and helps them to organize their thoughts. By giving kids fun journal prompts  and activities about topics they’re interested in, they’re more likely to get engaged in the material. They’ll want to journal again and again as they get to explore their imaginations. As they keep writing, their skills will improve and they’ll get better at developing their ideas.

Until next time, journal on!
