The purpose of this activity is to celebrate your young child’s daily experiences. To watch it evolve – to be able to revisit feelings and changes. This might just be the beginning of a journaling habit.
- Two or three evenings a week, before story time, ask your child about their day. What did they notice or do or feel? Draw pictures together. Glue special things. Write their words.
- Every few weeks, get the journal out to read with your other bedtime books.
- Encourage them to read their story to grandparents and other family members.
