Activity Days: Journals

Today we had the girls over at my home for Activity Days, there was 8 of them. We talked about the importance of keeping a journal. I found lots of information on the activity at http://www.theideadoor.com/ they even had cute bookmarks that I printed off for the girls with ideas about things to write in their journals. We decorated small notebooks that I found at Walmart for $0.97 with colored scrapbook paper and foam flowers. We also put flowers on the end of each pen with florist tape so they would be more motivated to write. We had them each write a short biography of themselves and their families. I made Carmel popcorn to snack on, the new microwaveable kind cannot be beat (so simple)! It was a fun project and they seemed to be enjoying themselves.
