Don’t get stuck with journaling

Check out these 12 ideas to journaling

Here are three ideas to get you started. Then pop over here to see the rest.

Use a quote. I love using quotes as my journaling!  I do it often when I have a “moment” type photo that doesn’t really need a lot of explanation.  Or when I find a quote that I think really embodies something I’d like my children to remember or learn.  Sometimes I might add a few lines of my own thoughts to go with the quote, but often I just leave the quote to do the talking.

Use humor.  Poke fun.  Share a little bit of real life.  I made up names for each of my little “monsters” on this layout, writing about some of their best monster traits.

Let your child write the story. You can have your child write down the answer to a question you ask.  Or maybe incorporate a paper they wrote at school.  But let THEIR handwriting be on the page.  It’s so neat to see how their handwriting changes over the years.  And the spelling?  Love the sounded out words in those early years!
