Have a prayer journal for each kid - write prayers for that child - over the time you have created a memory journal with your hopes, fears, challenges, and love all recorded. add to their journals all ready.
What a great thing to add to my journaling and how fun it would be to do with the girls. Smashbook - Even if it got filled out once a month, what a journal it would be - i'd like to do this with my students so they can see how they change in one year
Art Journaling - can be used as a therapeutic and/or self-care tool. I know they say keeping a journal is good for you but I never seem to be able to sustain it. Something more creative might be the way to go.
stylised tree - for all those times when I want to use a tree but it ends up looking like I tried to make it too lifelike! I like the doodle-y tree, and the journaling broken up by doodled borders, and the journaling running perpendicular to the tree.
