DIY NOTEBOOK FOR KIDS!


Is there anyone else who collects notebooks? I don’t think I can leave a dollar store without picking up a new one. I love the feeling of hope, productivity, and comfort each one brings. The lists, stories, and ideas that are about to fill the pages is so exciting!

One of my kids recently joined the notebook trend and we’re hoping it catches on at your house too!


WHAT YOU NEED:

  • a notebook with a plain cover (ours is from MUJI)

  • patches or stickers (our are from MONKI)

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Use patches or stickers to decorate the front cover of your notebook.

  2. Write! Write! Write!

ACTIVITY EXTENSION:

  • Create a DIY Journal-Making kit for friends! This would be the perfect gift for a budding writer – and not just for birthdays! We love a good “just because” gift and this one has “just because” written all over it!

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • What do you hope to write about in your notebook?

  • Why do people write?

  • What does writing feel like?

  • Share times that you have chosen to write and why.

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • starting a writing practice

  • sharing their writing ideas

  • showing pride in their completed work

My daughter is hoping to fill her notebook with situations where people could have acted with more kindness. HOW SWEET IS THAT? (Insert ugly cry here!)

We are excited for you kiddo(s) to get started on their writing journey! Please tag us @theartstadium so we can celebrate the notebooks that are about to be filled with magic!


Happy connecting!


XOXO,

Lindsay
