We've started a Family Notebook.
I was trying to think of fun and innovative ways to introduce the kids to the discipline of journaling (and since they are only 2 and 3.5, I had to be creative!!).
So I bought a big notebook, some markers and every week we fill a page or two with tidbits that we've learned along the way. What did we play? Who came to visit? (If you stop over at our place, be sure to sign our scribbler!!)
I even printed out some simple clip art to glue into the book, to highlight fun events and experiences. Or some of the tough stuff too. No journal is complete if it is all the rough and tumble stuff of life is edited out!
I love love it because there is no --- planning, cropping, fussing involved. Just give the kids a crayon and let 'em go!
We even brought it along to family camping weekend and whoever wanted to could record a little picture or memory. How fun is that :)?!.
If you've tried this with your family, pass along any ideas or insights!
