The New Year brings so many fun opportunities for projects and one of my favorites is to start a new journal. I've been keeping my own my Mom's Memory Journal for a few years now, and I'm so excited to print a fresh set of months for this year. Last year, I also started using the Instant Happy Journal to help me remember to embrace the things that bring me joy, and it's made a positive difference in my daily life.
This year, I'm excited to start a journal with my boys and I have found the perfect interactive journal for kids. I think we're really going to enjoy it and I'd love to share it with you too!

Me: A Compendium is exactly what it sounds like - a journal that encourages your child to write and draw fun facts all about themselves. It's a wonderful way to encourage them to share their thoughts and to celebrate the things that make them unique. It includes a mix of drawing and writing prompts, with everything from facts about their lives (what time I wake up) to their hopes and dreams ("If I had a shop, it would be..."). As the inside cover says, all you need is your ideas, a way to write them down, and someone to share it with.
My boys are not quite reading and writing on their own yet, so we'll be doing the journal together. I'm looking forward to encouraging them to talk about themselves, to document their lives now and to learn more about some of their ideas and dreams. Using a journal together is a great way to get kids thinking and sharing, and by using the prompts in Me: A Compendium I know that we will have a great opportunity to spend creative quality time together.
If you're looking for a fun journal for kids then check out Me: A Compendium and join us in the New Year as we work through the book together. You'll be glad you did and you'll love the keepsake it creates!
