DIY Journal – Activity Days Craft

I teach Activity Days for the 8-9 year old girls in my ward and we made DIY Journals for our last activity. They had a lot of fun getting creative and because it was personal it made them excited about keeping a journal. They each asked me to take a photo of their journal after and send it to their moms!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Start off your activity by explaining the benefits and importance of keeping a journal. (I also read them an entry from a journal of mine I had from when I was their age.)
  2. Hand them each a notebook and explain/show an example of what they will be doing.
  3. Let them go to work!

  1. What an adorable idea! My twins and I used to do this to their notebooks before school starts. It helps them keep track of their books and notebooks while at school.
