Early Journals

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.
