Helping kids start a journal gives them a way to save and value their artistic efforts.
Keeping a planner or journal helps me track and keep up with my resolutions. Here’s a few tips for how to start journaling in the New Year.
Our daughter is in a constant mode of creating. She loves to knit and sew and seems to be in an endless loop of sketching, planning, and making fabric store shopping lists. She has several projects in various stages going on at once — all of which creates a lot of fantastic creative mess. Using Color-Pop and Pocket Pal notebooks as creative journals have been such a great way for my daughter to focus her energy and work through her creative process. I could see any kiddo using them for whatever creative projects they’ve got in the works: LEGO designs, story writing, nature sketching. Journals are an excellent tool for kids’ imaginations!
While I love crafting with my son at our kitchen table, it was important for me to make a creative space for him that’s all his own now that he’s getting older. I had three goals in mind when creating his space, which I’ll share with you below to help you create your own craft space.
