Does your child need some new hobbies? If they're anything like mine, they've already gone through almost every single hobby, toy, game, movie, and everything else in the house.
Journaling, while it may not sound like fun to a child, is a great way to express emotions, get creative, learn, grow, and keep busy. With everything going on in the world right now, journaling can also serve as a tool to document all of it.
Recently we shared Kids Journal Prompts: Stuck At Home Edition and received some amazing feedback from parents and grandparents alike. As it turns out, kids who claim not to like homework and writing absolutely thrive when it comes to journaling.
From writing about quarantine to diving deep into imaginations, these kids' journal prompts will inspire your children.
