My friend Katie posted pics of her kids making their summer journals. As soon as I saw the pictures, I knew I wanted to do the same thing with Jonah. I bought his composition book at Target today and let him decorate it when I got home.
He used all sorts of stickers from our sticker drawer to design it "just the way" he likes it.
Our plan is to have him write at least two sentences each day of our summer break.
He isn't a fan of writing so this will be good for him. But, you probably shouldn't expect many posts about this being a fun activity. Decorating it was probably the most fun part of the whole experience.
