Early Journals

The purpose of this activity is to celebrate your child’s life. To watch it evolve and revisit feelings and changes and show that those feelings matter. And 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.
