Kids Craft: Make Your Own Journal

This month Jen Goode from 100 Directions is back with fun summer kids craft for you.  School will be out before you know it!  Print this free journal kit and let them make their own journal to decorate and write in all summer long.  This is perfect for long car trips this summer as well!  Y’all enjoy!

When I was a kid, I loved making up my own books, picture catalogs and notebooks. We called journals “diaries” back then and they were only meant for keeping our secrets. Now, journals can be for anything. You can have a journal to capture your favorite quotes, a doodle of the day or what you ate for breakfast. Whatever you want to share or write about, it can go right in your journal. I think it’s important to share this our kids so today I have a little printable journal kit you can print and make!
